My students are funny, creative, and driven. They leave me feeling motivated and upbeat each day. They are bright and strive for academic success by interacting with challenging texts and each other in order to gain a more diverse perspective and understanding of the world.
Together, we challenge each other to improve upon ourselves and our talents.
I consistently enjoy our group discussions, teachable moments, and uplifting conversations. Small town students are truly inspiring as they make their way through life and strive to better their community.
Unfortunately, no school in the entire county system that I work in has a class set of "A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams. This play is a classic, and students deserve and crave to be exposed to these influential pieces of literature that will make them analyze, discuss, and question. I want my students to be able to experience this play as they read and act out all the scenes.
The intense dialogue, vivid use of imagery, and thematic issues that Tennessee Williams uses in "A Streetcar Named Desire" will encourage my students to read for significance, not simply understanding.
They will be able to focus on William's use of the rhetorical triangle of speaker, message, and audience in order to gain an appreciation of how a classic text can impact a contemporary world.
