Why Teach Literature
One of the duties of my day job is to write a blog. Today I posted an entry entitled Why Teach Literature, a subject near and dear to me. The new Common Core Standards of English call for public schools to increase nonfiction reading, so that by senior year 70% of reading material be nonfiction. In effect literature is being driven from the high school curriculum. Read Why Teach Literature for my reasons why this is unacceptable, and let me know what you think.
