The teachers went to school as students for a day! We are so appreciative of the wisdom, inspiration, and modeling provided by Andrew Zwerneman. Topics included “Great Discussions on Great Texts”, “How to Teach Poetry”, and “How to Teach Fiction”. For fiction, teachers read a short story from Flannery O’Connor, then discussed the physical and psychological details evident in the text, a strategy that teaches students from the inside out.
