THE VOICES PROJECT
At the TVCC Library, we are committed to helping faculty discover quality, diverse resources to share with their students. The Voices Project was developed to help faculty bring new perspectives into their classrooms. Each classroom book kit comes with a set of 15 books and a teaching guide with topics for discussion, suggestions for further reading, and project ideas. Used as anchor texts for a unit, supplemental readings, or as extra credit projects, these texts bring a voice and a face to important issues that you may already be teaching about.
How It Works
Book kits are available for check out at the TVCC Library. We will check the kit and teacher materials out to your faculty library account.
Use the books to supplement a unit or assignment you already have planned or use the assignments provided in the teaching guide. Don't feel pressured to teach the whole book! Excerpts can illustrate a topic from the week's lecture or serve as a conversation starter on the discussion board. The Way to Rainy Mountain, The Collected Schizophrenias, and The Poet X are a great place to start for short thematic readings.
When your students complete the unit, return the kit to the Library and fill out our user survey. We'll use your feedback to improve the project and purchase additional titles!
