Take a look at this interview with award-winning author, Jacqueline Woodson.
A history or language arts teacher might use it to talk about New Historicism or historical documentation. Or just share it after talking about autobiographical writing in terms of Woodson's Show Way. Good stuff!
This semester we viewed several clips featuring Woodson, Gene Yang, and Sharon Creech while reading their books.
What do you think? Do you include clips from authors that relate to the topic you're teaching?
