The VHL Teacher's Curriculum Guide
Vampire Huntress Legends 101 Many educators today are looking for creative ways to inspire their students to read--especially to get them to read literature that has a positive underlying message which promotes the core values of: "do the right thing," diversity and tolerance, and thinking of the larger world community, while also asking students to think about "choices and consequences" of their actions.
The Vampire Huntress Legend uses this within the context of "pop fiction" as the core foundation. The "good guys" are also cool. The setting is hip, urban, and contemporary, but beneath all the layers of fictive drama, the classic myths of a journey of transformation are told.
To that end, in 2005, a worthy veteran educator, Vera DaVinci, Program Manager for The Office of Accelerated Learning, School District of Philadelphia, created a "Teacher's Curriculum Guide" for the first two books of this series (Minion and The Awakening, both available in mass market sized paperbacks for a reasonable $6.99.)
Ms. DaVinci was requested to design this guide after we received numerous requests from educators nationwide who wanted to know how to harness the fantastic positive energy young people had as avid fans of the series. Given that the Major Themes in the VHL legend were in alignment with those themes many educators wanted to promote, these educators told us that they were also looking for ways to standardize a teaching methodology around the body of literature.
