The second part of my post on teaching Richard Wright’s 1940 novel, Native Son, is up at Method to the Madness: Creating Critical Thinkers through the Study of Literature. Please click here.
Here are a few upcoming events:
On January 9th, Liz and I will be conducting a professional development workshop for middle and high school English teachers.
The workshop is based on our book, Method to the Madness: A Common Core Guide to Creating Critical Thinkers through the Study of Literature, and will be held at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA (flier below).
The registration form is here.
We will be there from 4 to 6 pm, but teachers can receive 20% off any purchase (plus special treats and gifts) all day.
We’d love to see you there!
Finally, we will be presenting a workshop at the California Association of Teachers of English (CATE) Convention.
The workshop is titled “Creating Critical Thinkers through the Study of Literature” and will take place at 9:45 on February 17th (the first day of the conference).
