Teaching literature is an uphill task for teachers of today. Books have to compete with iPods, X Box, TV, texting and social media, for children’s attention. However, the merits of teaching literature are undeniable and hence it is a compulsory component of every Language Arts syllabus. This workshop aims to not only provide teachers with strategies to create real, lifelong readers, but also ways to gear their students towards critical and analytical thinking.
