It's been a long break here at PoetryPedagogy.com with lots to be attended to IRL. This spring, I'll be teaching two newish classes: Young Adult Literature for undergraduates, and Social History of Spoken Word Poetry as a graduate seminar. I'll post readings and course plans for each soon.
The semester got underway a week ago Wednesday, but then we had 2.5 snow/frozen roads days this week, so I've taught a total of one class meeting so far. It's a little strange, but the good news is that I'm getting my desk copies ordered for the first time in awhile!
Thanks for visiting Poetry/Pedagogy. This site blog is where I'll post notes and thoughts about the critical pedagogies and literacies work happening in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and around the world. - Sue
