Teaching Texts With Technology
a workshop with Corrie Claiborne, Ph.D.
April 23, 2012
11:30 a.m.

This will be a participatory workshop that explores multiple ways to engage and enhance cultural readings and to examine the style and language of written texts. “My Father’s Name: A Black Virginia Family After the War,” a memoir by Lawrence Jackson, will be the work discussed. The workshop presents a pedagogical model inviting new ways of teaching writing and literature. All iPads and other devices are welcome. Twitter will be the vehicle for the interactive community.
