Falling Down the "Alice Project" Rabbit Hole: Inverting Traditional HS English Research and Writing

Who:
Christian Long, Jason Kern, Benedikt Kroll and Michael Nathman
When:
Session Two
Where:
Room 204

For 6+ weeks this academic year, 3 sections of 10th grade English students (at a college prep, independent school in Texas) publicly analyzed Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (via The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition). Instead of the traditional approach to analyzing a text (with a teacher-lead conversations around pre-determined themes), students were challenged to "fall down the rabbit hole" (like Alice) throughout the duration of the project, therefore trusting their own instincts as they made their way through Wonderland's themes.
