|aA two-day seminar for parents and teachers that prepares them to teach literature effectively, regardless of their training or experience. The seminar is built around three unique ideas: All works of fiction share the same basic elements-- context, structure, and style; because it is approachable and engaging, children's literature is the best genre for teaching students to recognize and evaluate these elements; and, the best classroom technique for teaching literary analysis and interpretation is the Socratic method. The seminar includes inspiring lectures and demonstrations by Adam Andrews, including live readings of works by Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Leo Tolstoy and Beatrix Potter. Course syllabus contains everything a teacher needs to conduct powerful literary discussions, including our exclusive Socratic List, a set of 178 graded discussion questions applicable to any book on your reading list, full texts of all stories used in the seminar, annotated reading lists for students of all ages, reproducible charts for classroom use, scope and sequence models, daily lesson plans and more.
