Sometimes professional development works for any teacher in any grade level or subject area. Sometimes it's better to dive deep with teachers in your content area.
Make the study of literature fun, relevant, and meaningful. You will walk away from this course with many new ideas and materials to inspire creativity and curiosity in your classroom. I will discuss pedagogy, curriculum, and around 100 downloadable resources including a unit on poetry, short fiction, and Hamlet.
At the end of the course, you'll get the time to create a new lesson or activity, and receive a certificate of completion for 10 PD credit hours. Individual districts or states approve the PD credit hours.

Hi, I’m Scott Cameron and I'm a high school English teacher at Princeton High School in New Jersey.
It's truly an art to create an activity that keeps all students engaged, and I find that I am most creative after a good conversation with a colleague about the thought process and philosophy behind teaching literature. This course will get your creative juices flowing. Visit Teacher's Workshop to read my blog about teaching and literature and learn more.
