Symbolism & Meaning in Literature

Feedback form is now closed.
In this session geared toward high school ELA educators, I will be discussing approaches to teaching many types of symbolism in both print and visual texts. For example, symbolism of colours, animals, and objects will be presented. Relevant in-class student activities will be provided at the session that can connect to a variety of pieces of literature at many curricular levels.
