WHAT YOU’LL DO
You will teach courses in groups of two on works of enduring literary value to incarcerated persons in a pre-trial correctional facility. Share your passion for literature, develop your teaching skills, and get involved in your community!
You will work with your co-instructors to propose a reading schedule, develop thoughtful discussion questions and writing assignments, and pair the text with multimodal activities or supplementary handouts. Your materials will help students develop critical thinking skills, spark intellectual curiosity with new or unfamiliar ideas, and increase confidence through discussion of the text with a close-knit learning community.
OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Inside Literature uses a Community-Based Learning approach to the Humanities. It is a focus on collaboration, reciprocity, reflection, and citizenship that distinguishes community-based learning. Reflection allows instructors to connect their community work with a deeper sense of civic engagement or Citizenship. Reciprocity reminds us that all participants in Inside Literature have something to learn and something to teach. Collaboration gives all participants agency to form their own learning goals and to shape their own program experiences.
