    While it certainly satisfies a new low in apathy and lethargy, eclipsing the likes of Sparks and Cliff Notes, it does present an outstanding project idea for a literature class.

Meeting the Needs of ELL Students in the Literature Classroom - 43 views

    This article emphasizes that ELLs benefit when literature teachers include techniques that make the learning more accessible. I like the idea of connecting the literature to a real project. I do this same activity with my adult ELLs every semester. For example, this semester they are reading "Breaking Through", a true story about a boy whose parents are undocumented agricultural workers. It is a great story of perseverance and "grit" that shows how immigrants make this country stronger. I am going to pair the reading with a group project called "The Immigrant Experience in Houston". My students will research an immigrant group and chronicle the melting pot that is Houston. They will create a Power Point Presentation and share their research with the class. Food samples always get 5 extra points!

    Novels have power and influence. Interesting look at the darker side of the author's power over the reader in an age when we insist that all reading is goodness and light. Not a call for censorship by any means--just a reflection on how truly powerful literature is.

    Essay about teaching literature by finding the emotional connection in the readers, then examining how that happened in the writing.  Instead of teaching from theory and structure, this develops concepts of theory and structure from the reading experience.
