Reading good stories is a wonderful way to learn! In this course, designed for teachers of grades 7-14, participants will read stories by classic and comtemporary American authors. The materials also provide a review of the tools for reading, stimulating the development of insight, understanding, and discernment. Teachers will be asked to relfect on the 10 stories they read by writing brief informal responses and will have opportunity to experiment with ways to incorporate two of these stories into their teaching. This course is designed to meet the objectives identified in the Common Core State Standards in Language Arts, the National Council of Teachers of English Standards, as well as the five core propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. These national standards undergird the activities of the course. Students will be asked to make connections between their work and these standards or the standards of their own states.
