The Masks of Paul Laurence Dunbar: Writing and Race at the Turn of the 19th and 20th CenturiesIndex #1442
When his work is taught at all in literature courses, Paul Laurence Dunbar tends to be presented exclusively as a poet. However, in addition to his poems in dialect and standard English, Dunbar also published short stories, novels, essays, and song lyrics and engaged with questions of race and identity in distinct ways in each genre. This workshop is based on the presenter's participation in the 2015 NEH Summer Institute "Paul Laurence Dunbar and American Literary History." The workshop may be of interest not only to English instructors but also instructors from other disciplines who seek to integrate literature in discussing issues of race and identity.

Effective Questioning: Using Questions to Value and Support Student DiscussionsIndex #1623
We all ask students questions to assess their understanding of different concepts, but what other types of questions should be part of our pedagogy? This session will provide an overview of several different question styles (convergent, divergent, valuing, etc.) and suggestions for avoiding questioning techniques that can inadvertently turn off student thinking. We will put these ideas to practice by first examining a short video clip from a college science class followed by an opportunity for participants to brainstorm different questions for use in their classes.
