The Go Big Read program is looking to identify instructors who would like to use the 2010 selection, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, with their classes during the coming fall and spring semesters.
Instructors can apply for free copies of the book, for use with their classes, by completing a request form. The deadline for a fall semester request will be July 1, 2010. See a list of courses that plan to integrate the book into their curriculum. The Teaching and Learning Excellence site will also provide a forum for instructors to ask questions and to suggest ideas for incorporating the book, or selections from it, in class. (Note: Log-in with your NetID to comment and contribute).
“Go Big Read” is UW-Madison’s common book program where students, staff and the community are invited to read the same book, then participate in a variety of related programs in-and-out of the classroom.
