Mona Lisa Site meets ground rules of NGfL
===========================================================My students' King Tut project was inspired by the History Channel recent airing of The Ancient Egypt Series and our Brazil collaboration.
History Channel Inspired King Tut Project
I have always been fascinated by ancient world cultures, particulary the curse of Tut. In preparation in engaging my inner city students in world culture studies I taped this series at home.
Opon review of the series I realized that it would serve as a catalyst for providing my students with compellingly presented primary sources, in an engrossing format.
My advanced placement computer graphics were so motivated by the screening, they used this cable source material for inspiration and knowledge base for developing their new ThinkQuest NYC.
The Curse of Tut : Fact or Myth has received an i-Class AA rating. this article explains how the new project was developed. /13681/data/millennium/tutcable.htm

Brothers and sisters I have none, but that man's father is my father's son. How is that man related to me?
