The experience of reading literature is central to designing experiences for teaching literature. To this end, teachers will read a variety of current and canonical literature and explore pertinent theory and pedagogy in light of these texts and their own teaching. In this course, participants will also explore their own processes as readers and writers, share lessons in literary elements, apply PA Common Core Standards and Assessments to curriculum, and design and experience writing activities about and inspired by literature.
"The strength of this course is the plethora of strategies provided. All are usable, realistic, and standard-based (but creative, too!). You will learn enough to fill your plan book for the entire year." - Course participant
