We'll also look at literary devices that convey a deeper meaning than what's on the page. As we continue our discussion, we'll see how this multi-layered teaching approach reinforces learning and efficiently uses class and student time. And, as with all subjects, we'll discuss ways to encourage students to join in the conversation and to be fearless when they ask questions.
