Audio Book – Rockford’s Rock Opera

Audio Book – Rockford’s Rock Opera.

This is really fascinating. It shows the potential of the web for creativity and for cross curricular investigation. For those from the U.S. and other countries the very “British English”  voices may or may not be a distraction.

It is though a masterpiece of music, animation and storytelling that can usefully be used for children to write, think about, draw and examine issues such as the threat to the planet of our actions. These can then be investigated using the net.

Although a commercial venture to sell the remaining two parts of the download (after the initial free one), this really is a resource with so much potential for teachers. I cannot recommend it too highly and would be interested to receive feedback as to how it has been used in classrooms.
