Just Posted on the New York Times Learning Network!

While we eagerly await the release of Using Informational Text to Teach To Kill a Mockingbird, we have started work on our second volume, which focuses on Lorraine Hansberry's landmark play, A Raisin in the Sun.

As part of that process, we are excited to have had the opportunity to write this post for the New York Times Learning Network: ‘A Raisin in the Sun’ and ‘Discrimination in Housing Against Nonwhites Persists Quietly', which was just published today as part of their "Text to Text" series, an invaluable resource for teachers seeking rewarding ways to put informational text into dialogue with literature. As in all of our work, we aim to offer resources that will help teachers engage their students meaningfully in the continuing relevance and of Hansberry's powerful play. We look forward to your feedback.

Also, if you are an educator in New Jersey, please join us at the NJCTE spring conference on Saturday, March 22, at Montclair State University and/or on Thursday, March 27, at our NJASCD workshop, "Using Informational Text: Cross-Disciplinary Literacy to Motivate Secondary Learners," at the FEA Conference Center in Monroe Township, NJ.
