I am so excited for Kate Durbin's E! Entertainment to come out. I'm also thrilled with how I can incorporate it into my Freshman Composition class as a pro-feminist conceptual poetry book without needing to say it is so.
A place to order:
My lesson plan will involve reading George F Will's "Reality Television: Oxymoron" and Mark Greif's "The Reality of Reality Television." Then we will read E! Entertainment, listen to podcasts, read interviews with Kate Durbin, etc. We will watch an episode of a show in class, as students transcribe their own scene. We will brainstorm reality television shows, then each student will transcribe three poems. Finally, an essay will make connections between the readings and the students' own work.
If you have any ideas, please send them my way!
