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?
Join this virtual workshop to (1) tackle some of the biggest questions facing ELA classrooms today and (2) gain practical, step-by-step strategies for engaging ALL students in reading that is active, social, equitable, adventurous, subversive (yes!), and life-changing. Work with a variety of juicy (and complex!) texts. Learn student-driven, language-focused activities that not only provide access to the broad sweep of literature but also promote inquiry and creativity. Get all students grappling with the real thing. Experience the Folger Method for teaching complex texts--and the thrill of mutual discovery, the joy of the unexpected, and the power of language to move us all.
