Reading Luna

Posted by bgsuenglish on January 26, 2010

Come join the Center for Teaching and Learning for the first Faculty Focus Series lecture of Spring 2010. Rona Klein, (Senior Lecturer in Literature) and Natalie Price will present “Reading Luna: A Joint Project with English 3450/Adolescent Literature and a Sophomore English Class at Maumee Valley Country Day School” on Wednesday, January 27 from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in 201 University Hall.

This discussion would be of particular interest to those who want to learn more about using service-learning in a literature course or those who are thinking of a career as a high school instructor. “Reading Luna” would also appeal to people interested in teaching LGBT or other forms of diversity in their classes. In the fall 2009 semester, Klein’s English 3450: Adolescent Literature class emphasized LGBT young adult books. In connection with that, her students – all of whom are going to be teachers – and Natalie Price’s 10th grade students read and discussed Luna, a young adult book about a transgender teen by Julie Anne Peters.

To register, please contact the Center for Teaching and Learning at 419-372-6898 or <ctl@bgsu.edu>. For more information about the program, contact the Office of Service-Learning at 419-372-9865.
