This reading group for K-16 educators explores literary texts from a global perspective. Content specialists present the work and its context, and together we brainstorm innovative pedagogical practices for incorporating the text and its themes into the curriculum. Sessions this year will take place virtually on Thursday evenings from 5-8 PM. Books and Act 48 credit are provided. This reading group is co-sponsored with Pitt's African Studies Program and led by Associate Professor Christel Temple of Africana Studies.
