This is a slight update from a blog entry I posted back in March, when my follower count was still a single digit number. With school starting up across the country for students of all ages, I thought I’d re-post this information.
Back in 2008 and 2009, I was invovled in the Teaching Steinbeck project. The Teaching Steinbeck project is an initiative from Martha Heasely Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies at San Jose State University to provide a comprehensive resource of study aids for teachers, students and anyone looking to delve into the works of John Steinbeck. I specifically co-authored the In Dubious Battle and East of Eden sections of this website.
The project has progressed rapidly over the past year and many guides to Steinbeck’s works are now uploaded onto the site and available to the public. So if you are currently enjoying a Steinbeck novel or find yourself covering the works of Steinbeck in your class, be sure to check out the Teaching Steinbeck project: http://as.sjsu.edu/steinbeck/teaching_steinbeck/index.jsp.
