[Channel-talklitconversations] Workshop 3

From: Tami O'Neill <tamera.oneill@gmail.com>
Date: Sun Jul 20 2008 - 23:25:49 EDT

I am working through the Conversations in Literature Workshops individually and just completed session 3. As I was brainstorming ways to help students enter the text for the first time, I wondered if an old strategy I had used would work. In the past, I have had students do mini research projects to discover information about the time or place in which a novel is set. I usually let students choose what they learn about, but there are guidelines. I wonder if this is an effective method of helping them gain background knowledge that will then help their stepping into a text, or if this really is a non-authentic assignment that will not help in the long run.
