Pixar's 20+ Rules on Storytelling for Teachers and Students A week ago I posted here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a poster made by Pixar in which they featured 22 rules on storytelling and it was really so informative reading all the feedback you sent me , however, today I woke up to an email from a colleague of mine teaching in the State in which he shared with me the graphic below.

Why of course you can,” urges Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby in Baz Luhrmann’s high-octane adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, which opens today after a worrisome stutter step and both fevered and dreaded anticipation.
