  Examining. Thinking critically. Wondering. Imagining. Growing. At its best, reading literature with your students has the power to enthuse and encourage them to new levels of success in countless directions. At your best, your teaching has the power to provoke thoughts, expand worlds, and help your students grow academically, socially, and personally.

This workshop is about combining the best of literature with the best of teaching to create communities of learners where literature is the path to growth. Based on solid philosophies and sound practices, it explores ways to shape reading, writing, and discussion into the genuine opportunities for personal development you always knew they could be.
