Dylan: Send Someone A Message is a viral marketing site promoting a Bob Dylan  “greatest hits” album that’s coming out in October.

In it, you can create a “burma-shave” kind of message on ten sheets a young Bob Dylan shows one after another.  You then email it to a friend.  If you’re using it in class you can post the link on a blog or online journal.

It’s sort of neat, especially if you’re a Dylan fan.  It’s an opportunity for English Language Learners to write (in a strange way, to be sure).  But it would be a nice combination with the study of a Dylan song or two, like “Blowin’ In the Wind.”

I’ve placed the link on my Examples of Student Work page under, what else, but Student Messages From Bob Dylan.
