Failing to Teach The Hobbit

Failing to Teach the Hobbit by Christina Socorro Yovovich is an intriguing vignette involving teaching the classroom novel. If you teach any novel, at any level, whether by choice or obligation, this piece is a must-read.

Thanks, Christina, for sharing. The rest of us can learn a lot through your painful experience!

    Christina, your story was just priceless. I have been there and done that too! It just takes practice teaching period, whether it is a novel, grammar, or something else, and we still don’t always get it right. Doesn’t that have something to do with multiple personalities traits? 🙂 Thanks for your entertaining piece!
