EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Trying not to be too redundant, I talk more about what I introduced when, as I think roll-out is critical for the game to be successful. Then, I briefly touch upon how students are responding to the game.

What I *forgot* to mention in this episode is that EVERY student completed a 1 1/2 page write-up of their avatar on time -- for the Kingdom census, that is -- and that already about 10% of the students have "leveled-up." (Leveling-up is turning in completed writing for assessment, and reaping the "rewards" associated with movement through the levels.)

One student wrote 22 pages of quality prose in less than a week, and ended up moving more than 3/4s of the way to Level 10 in the game. At level 10, the student is passing, with a D-. He reported that this was the longest story he had written to date.
