Native American Literature Symposium, April 5-7, 2007

Roundtable on Teaching American Indian Poetry

This is one of two panels at the Native American Literature Symposium--the
premiere Native Literature gathering--sponsored by the ASAIL Committee on
Pedagogy and Teaching. This particular roundtable will feature individual
scholars giving mini-presentations on teaching Native American poems.
Presentations can range from topics of courses to the use of secondary
sources to innovative approaches. I am especially interested in proposals
that pair two poems by different poets and/or that offer an actual hands-on
"lesson" for use in the classroom.
