Where complexity and literature connect

From the 2012 Vancouver Writers Fest brochure:

“Take, say, physics, which restricts itself to extremely simple questions.  If a molecule becomes too complex, they hand it over to the chemists.  If it becomes too complex for them, they hand it to biologists.  And if it becomes too complex for them, they hand it to psychologists . . . and so on until it ends up in the hands of historians or novelists.”                

                                                                                                                        – Noam Chomsky

About phansenvsb

I am passionate about teaching reading and writing to a diverse audience from those experiencing challenges in reading and writing to those who seek deep enrichment in literature and its connections to the world in which it was written and to the present day. I also present workshops on assessment for learning, differentiated instruction, literature circles, disciplinary literacy, and inquiry.
