Reading Selection in Classroom Relationships
This essay focuses on the classroom dynamic in a literature/writing class for adult students pursuing their undergraduate degree. The course focused on Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment but supplemental poems provided a way to explore similar literary themes in contemporary context. Specifically, this essay explores conversations rooted in intersections of and perceived conflicts of racial, gender, and sexual identities that students raised and I tried to respond to through poem selection.
