Book Title: The Literature Workshop

Author: Blau

Book Description:

This book was written by my PhD adviser, Sheridan Blau (now at Teachers College, Columbia University).  His influence on me and my own work cannot be understated. 
The book offers a glimpse of truly meaningful, rich, and engaging literature instruction that takes us beyond simply "having read" and into why and how we read, and to what ends.  Students in my courses will recognize several of these workshops. Overall, it depics a way of being in the classroom that I strive to emulate.
