World

Pre-Texts is a methodology developed by Doris Sommer for education professionals to stimulate close reading and critical-thinking skills by making art based on challenging texts. This book is a manual of sorts. Presented in both English and Spanish, it gathers vivid descriptions and images of dozens of different Pre-Texts activities held across the globe, in person and in online forums, with groups diverse in age, background, and native language.

Pre-Texts International features testimonials from both facilitators and participants, who describe in detail the planning, procedures, and activities they carried out and attest to the methodology’s efficacy and adaptability in a wide range of contexts.
