Joseph F. Riener - Teach Me How to Work and Keep Me Kind and Puzzle Me the Right Answer to That One

Saturday, January 9, 2016 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

In this two-part survey focusing on literature and composition in American high schools, Reiner, a longtime English teacher at Wilson High School in Washington, D.C., shows what a dedicated and creative instructor can do with material for the AP exam. The test may be standardized, but the approach need not be, and Riener discusses his criteria for including specific texts in his curriculum, recounts discussions that engaged the students and helped them improve their writing, and, overall, presents a powerful argument against the uniformity of the Common Core curriculum in favor of a more humanistic approach to literature.
