I have been using Lantern in my capacity as a computer science teacher for several years. During that time, I have developed many resources to help introduce students to playing text-adventures and writing their own. I have posted some of them here in the hope that it might encourage other educators to create text-adventure units of their own. If you are an educator and would like to create an adveture game unit for one of your classes, please let me know! I will be happy to help you in any way I can.
