How do particular elements of this story interact or affect other story elements (e.g., how setting shapes the characters or plot)?
Students read and analyze "To Build a Fire" by Jack London. The students create a dwelling that would have solved the conflict for the protagonist (snow, cold, wet) and leave objects in the house that would allow the protagonist to survive. They will have to journal their rationales for every decision using in-game Book and Quill.
Students will have at least one dwelling designed and constructed that significantly changes story elements.
Students will have at least three journal entries logged.
