The Alice: A Cocktail Experience is at KVML!
I have had many, many professional developments in my career, but none as valuable and with more takeaways merit than Teaching Vonnegut. I am a librarian in a diverse Appalachian high school of 1,700 students, and this year I have been able to collaborate with teachers about Kurt Vonnegut lesson plans, thus enhancing readership. There has been a renewed excitement about his works, and I have gotten several of my colleagues interested in coming to Teaching Vonnegut next summer. This is certainly a program that should grow and grow.
Workshops will be led by experts in their fields and Vonnegut scholars, and aim to enhance both public and educator knowledge on a variety of topics related to the works, interests and philosophy of Kurt Vonnegut. Workshops will also continue to help teachers build new, and enhance existing, educational curricula back at their home schools.
Teaching Vonnegut Workshops are inclusive, and open to anyone. There are no prerequisites. It is our goal to provide high-quality educational experiences to as many people as possible. So, whether you’re a teacher or just someone who has an interest in the subject matter, we welcome you at Teaching Vonnegut.
