Commando Classics: A Field Manual for Helping Teens Understand (and Maybe Even Enjoy) Classic Literature
300 pages • 8½ x 11
Commando Classics will help the teacher and librarian work together to present classic literature to teens in an irresistible way, by using what they already know: graphic media, pop culture, and nontraditional literature. Mythology, American literature, British literature, and Shakespeare, the high school English classes many teens are prepared to resist, will find themselves intrigued when they discover that it is all in the plot, and classic plots and references are in books, movies, cartoons, and even music. In Commando Classics you will learn how to teach the classics to even the most reluctant students, gain an extensive arsenal of resources and references, and realize teachers and librarians make perfect allies.
