[Channel-talklitconversations] Workshop 6 Video Discussion

From: Janie Slater <janieloveslife@hotmail.com>

Watching these videos and the groups discussing these literature texts, I am so taken back to my college English classes and reminded of how discussing literature with a group of other readers SO ENHANCES a reading! Others see things that I don't "get" the first or second or ANY reading through....things that then seem so OBVIOUS and critical. Like the discussion of Langston Hughe's "Theme for English B" poem. I never noticed the "movement" up and down throughout the poem. Descending DOWN from the school to Harlem. Then going UP to his room to write the paper. And how this is a picture of what education means--a way of elevating us...Our readings shared with others is more the richer.
