Resources for Teaching & Learning
Even more than other parts of Digital Yoknapatawpha, this section is a work in progress. We are putting it online in August 2020 in hopes of being helpful to teachers and their students at this very challenging moment in history, when so much teaching and learning is happening online. We plan to keep adding materials to it regularly over the coming months - and we'd love your help with that process. If you use DY with your students, please let us know how the experience went, and if there are ways in which we can improve the materials here to suit the needs of your classroom, whether it's online or not. And if you create resources for using DY to teach Faulkner's fictions that you'd like to share, please let us know. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
