Finally, while it’s only been out a few days, Unflattening has already been used in a classroom! Professor Steven L. Berg of Schoolcraft College shared the work with his composition courses, and he shared a few comments, including this:
While discussing *Unflattening* in my afternoon class, one of the students brought up the issue of parallax. Another student who was paging through the book responded, “Dr. Sousanis wrote about that on page 31.” The first student then explained the concept to the class and students began to spontaneously hold their figures up in front of their noses while closing one eye at a time. (These images are shared with the students’ permissions.)
It was really cool to see the book in action! The page on Parallax that they are referring to is here. Dr. Berg is planning to use the book in his courses in the fall, and has already set up a wiki around that. I will share more on that in the fall.
Thanks for the support! – N
