In February of 2020 (just a few weeks before lockdown), we led two sessions at the California Association of Teachers of English (CATE) Conference in Los Angeles.
This was our fourth year presenting at the conference.
The topic of the first presentation was “A Sea of Troubles: Investigating Otherness and Social Injustice with Originally Paired Texts.” The presentation used A Raisin in the Sun and The Merchant of Venice to demonstrate the strategies, and the content of the presentation later became the first chapter of our book, A Sea of Troubles: Pairing Literary and Informational Texts to Address Social Inequality.
Feel free to check out the presentation here.
The second presentation was titled, “Everything We Need to Teach (English) We Learned from Aristotle.” Feel free to check that presentation out here.
