In his introduction to this pedagogy project, Wes Berry ponders how teaching Robert Penn Warren’s work in high schools could help to promote Warren’s overall literary status. The following essays outline efforts to teach Warren’s fiction in two Kentucky high schools. In spring 2007, Angela Sloan taught Warren’s All the King’s Men and The Cave to A.P. English students using a comparative, intertextual approach. She details the successes of her class and includes students’ responses to their study of Warren. Furthermore, Kristina Rice presents creative approaches to making Warren’s stories accessible to high school students, including comparative thematic studies that draw on popular songs and film.
