A Room with a View: A Look at One Baltimore Classroom


During a recent Writers in Schools visit in Baltimore, author Rob Roensch met with instructor Lauren Masciantonio’s students who had read his collection of short fiction The WIldflowers of Baltimore. Masciantonio teaches English at Baltimore’s Academy for College and Career Exploration, and her students were curious to meet Roensch and were deeply engaged with him during the visit. Looking around Masciantonio’s classroom, it quickly became clear that she makes reading a priority in her classroom, and we thought we’d share a few of the quotes about reading that Masciantonio’s students see on a daily basis.  

"If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write something worth reading or do things worth the writing." — Benjamin Franklin

"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." — Frederick Douglass

"We read to know that we are not alone." — C.S. Lewis
