Please join Dr. Peggy O'Brien, Corinne Viglietta and Share My Lesson to feed your mind AND learn strategies to use in class tomorrow.
The future of the humanities depends on the insights of ALL our students. How do we give every student the tools and opportunities to make meaningful contributions to the ongoing conversation of humankind? What role does literature have to play in this work, and what do we mean by “literature,” anyway? How do we connect ALL students with texts that speak to them, challenge them, and stretch their minds and hearts? In practical terms, how do we get students not only understanding but also speaking back to a vast and rich range of texts?
