Thanks for visiting my blog. I am a high school English teacher committed to the next generation. I love students! Sure they have their problems, just like my generation, but I believe they are often misunderstood. Through this blog I hope to inspire parents and educators to invest in the next generation and encourage them to live worthwhile lives.

Follow me on Twitter @susanclaireb, and if you’re a teacher, check out AP Lit Help (AP Lit Help) and Bam!Radio (BAM! Radio Network Ed Words) where I, along with other committed educators, share what we are doing in our classrooms and and thoughts on education.

  3. Hi Susan — I really loved your character complexity visual posted on #APLitChat last night. Do you post things on TPT or is there any way I could get a copy of it? I am teaching Invisible Man to my AP students now and I feel it would be a great way to understand more than one character. Thanks!
