Italy Reads Masterclass

Italy Reads Masterclass

On Tuesday, October 14th twenty high school teachers attended the Italy Reads Masterclass for Teachers in JCU’s Aula Magna Regina. The masterclass was conducted by JCU Professor Silvia Ammary.

This year, Italy Reads participants are reading Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms. In past years, participants have read Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, Carson McCullers’s The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, and Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake.

The masterclass was attended by high school teachers from both Italian licei and international schools in and around Rome. The masterclass, designed to provide teachers with strategies for teaching Hemingway’s novel to their students, was a follow-up event to the Italy Reads Keynote Address delivered by Professor Ammary the previous week. Professor Ammary is a Hemingway scholar and Director of JCU’s ENLUS program (English language for University Studies).
