My experiences with High School literature were
boring - we had reading assignments to complete and
then we were to answer comprehension questions or
write an essay about the story. College was another
story. I had an excellent professor that stressed
reading the classics, and everything was discussed.
He made me make the connection between reading and
writing. In my English class I strongly stress reading
a variety of literature. We discuss the materials
throughly. Also, the students choose projects to
complete. The reading and writing connection is also
I am throughly enjoying the workshops. I have already
have several ideas of somethings that I want to try
with my students. The discussion of the poem "Oranges"
was an eye opener for me. I loved the the quote;
"All learning floats on a sea of thoughts."
Stay connected, organized, and protected. Take the tour:
