Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Leonardo: A Dream of Flight.
Amongst his many elaborate drawings, the Renaissance visionary Leonardo da Vinci shows a human-carrying helicopter-like machine. His sketch of the "aerial-screw" or "air gyroscope" device is dated to 1483 but it was first published nearly three centuries later. His proposed device comprised a helical surface formed out of iron wire, with linen surfaces made "airtight with starch." He did not build his machine, except perhaps for some small models, but his idea was clearly far ahead of its time.
The Learning Guide to the film Leonardo: A Dream of Flight contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
