Think Like a Literary Scholar
Curriculum alone is not able to address the needs of all learners. As a literary scholar, we want students to be able to comprehend and create literary pieces across many genres – i.e. poetry, informational texts, fiction, and more. Will they understand how new information influences their perceptions? What information can be gained from varying perspectives? How can developing critical literary skills provide students with opportunities to seek experiences to expand their knowledge and see themselves as literary scholars producing meaningful and real work in the literary field? Teachers attending this series will be exposed to advanced teaching and instructional practices to look at those topics and acquire strategies for adapting curriculum to deepen student learning.
The series will meet five times between October and December; with the final session being a full afternoon.
