American poet, writer, and critic Mark Van Doren once said, "The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” As a teacher, I take pride in playing a pivotal role in student discoveries -- in part by having them read about a range of life experiences. Some of those reading experiences might mirror elements of the students' own lives, in which they can find familiarity and comfort. Other experiences might present new paths for learning, thus deepening awareness and understanding. "The Glass Castle" memoir by Jeannette Walls offers both opportunities for my students. It's a coming-of-age story focused on Walls' poverty-stricken family but that highlights their resilience and hope. It is sure to resonate with my students, many of whom also struggle with poverty. Thank you for helping me provide this powerful resource!
