Welcome

Over the last few years, I've been experimenting with some new ideas in the classroom.  People often ask to see examples, and this webpage has been created to serve as an archive and to respond to those requests.  Most of what you'll see in the contents is very rough, created using off-the-shelf tools, in-house platforms, or good, old-fashioned markers and chalk.  But the underlying ideas are fairly constant:  that is, inviting readers to use different senses, skills, and forms of cognition to work with, think about, and enter into conversation with the verbal forms of literature.

Eventually, you'll find materials associated with three different projects:  Literature from Anywhere, a tiny, closed online course piloted in Spring 2014; Reading Poetry, a communications-intensive  introductory course; and Antarctica, a future course still in development.
