PRE-TEXTS EDUCATIONAL PROTOCOL PRESENTATION
On March 11, 2023, Pre-Texts was presented at the MABE 2023 conference in Hartford where teachers, principals, coaches and school district leaders gathered. In addition to briefly explaining the protocol, we did a small workshop as it could not be otherwise.
The text we used was selected by asking a middle school literature teacher for a text that he found difficult to work with in the classroom.
Text: Definition of a Gentleman, John Henry Newman’s Essay Is a Prime Example of Character Writing, By Richard Nordquist
