According to the article, there are 9 essential skills that all students need to learn in order to be successful.  I've decided that I'm going to model my first semester instruction on this idea.  I will have students complete writing and media projects linked to these skills but of their personal choosing.  All the required literature (it is a British Lit course) will be linked back to these ideas through discussion and/or writing.  My hope is that more students will see the connection between literature (even old, Brit Lit) and their lives.  If you are interested in more details, handouts, etc. let me know and I'll post them.
