12:30 p.m. Friday Lunch with the Author of the Year, Melanie Benjamin
IATE’s 2016 Illinois Author of the Year, Melanie Benjamin, is a well-decorated historical novelist whose books include The Aviator’s Wife, Alice I Have Been, and The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb. These prize-winning novels capture a spirit of women wonderfully. Melanie currently lives in Chicago. In addition to writing, she puts her theatrical training to good use by being a member of the Penguin Random House Speakers Bureau.
Modern World Literature. I have a couple of anchor texts but want to have the students help build the course- anyone have intro activities to gauge interest and inquisitiveness about our world? @ncte @ncte_cel @IATENow
Thank @ChiPubSchools leadership and @CPSCivicLife for providing educators these resources, so they can feel equipped to have discussions about race relations and systemic racism. Several school district's should get on board...
