Summer Reading Update

I’ve been quiet in my post Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows daze.  I promised myself I can re-read the entire series again once I finish my summer reading.  I have three books to go: The Return of the Native, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.  I’ve read most of the last two, so in a pinch, I can skip up to the part I’ve not read if I have to.  I am working on the senior seminar class I’m teaching next week, and I am excited about the way it’s shaping up.  I’m likely to be quiet next week as I will be working hard on this course.  I don’t imagine I’ll be very active at the UbD wiki next week, either.

One thought on “Summer Reading Update”

  1. Cuckoo's Nest is one of my favorite books to teach in my American Literature courses. When the kids begin to understand the narrator's ideas and the religious imagery, they go nuts and can't put it down! I usually read the transcendentalists first and teach American Lit. through that lens, which of course works perfectly with Kesey's ideas. Having the Kool Aid Acid Test and Kesey's prison writings helps as well.
