Literature Lesson Plans & Workshops

These lesson plans and workshops, developed for secondary school educators, demonstrate how cultural and social engagement can serve as a connective tool to  empower educators to use books, writing, and reading to further engage students. Each lesson plan includes multiple themes and a reading list.

LFP’s workshops help facilitate a deeper understanding of the lesson plans that helps educators (and parents) better incorporate learning as it relates to the literary arts, media, and social engagement. For details email
