Teaching Resources

Teaching Resources has two subsections: one for high school instructors and one for university instructors. Our goal is to provide suggestions for lesson plans, discussion topics, activities, and assignments that will take advantage of what this archive has to offer.

Digital editing is exciting not just because it gives scholars greater access to the kind of raw data previously accessible only in rare book libraries or printed facsimiles, but also because it opens a way for novices to encounter literature in all its wonderfully messy complexity. The static texts of anthologies and print editions have many uses, but digital presentations allow students to recognize that literature can be fluid and multi-faceted; it gives them a new appreciation for the role of scholarly editors in the production of the literature that they know from their textbooks.
