As a Mosaic Fellow, Julie will focus on creating active learning opportunities for students that engage them in the study of literature—as that which teaches and delights, as an educational pursuit that is relevant, significant, exciting, and meaningful to their lives and our world. Specifically, Julie plans to design ways in which students can work together to take what they are learning and what they deem to be most important and publicly share that via strategies that foster public engagement and a sense of community.
