Teachers, academics, and authors gather as a "community of readers" to discuss classic and contemporary literature from Shakespeare's Hamlet to works by Langston Hughes, James Dickey, and Alice Walker. Led by Dr. Judith Langer, the participants model the habits of effective readers in an approach known as "envisionment building" and demonstrate how intuition, background experiences, and personal involvement construct meaning for readers. The series' goal is to inspire teachers and show them how they can guide high school students toward engaging with literature in the same way.
