Literacy has become more important than ever, especially with the Common Core Standards. So how can we use literature in ways that interests all of our students? Take this course and find out! You will learn how to incorporate a variety of literary genres into your lessons and will focus on how to relate the material to your students. Together, we will practice activities which are geared towards the different genres and will create a variety of lessons which you can use with your students. You will be asked to turn in assignments which combine lesson plans, power point presentations and reflective essays.
