Monica Edinger, children’s literature expert and 4th grade teacher at the Dalton School, will be presenting her ideas and experiences in sharing fantasy literature with children. In recent years, classics such as The Wizard of Oz , The Golden Compass and Alice In Wonderland have been given new life in other media. Monica will show how to introduce these titles to children by sharing different text formats and incorporating online and cinematic elements.
