The John Updike Childhood Home will work with area teachers to coordinate a class visit to the house with assigned readings and/or activities. Tours of the house are free. We can also recommend Updike stories, poems, and novels to read, based on the age group.
Coming soon: workshops satisfying Common Core standards for specific works by Updike as a resource for high school teachers, developing and hosting teacher workshops with Pa. Act 48 professional credit, creating customized school tours of the house with assigned readings and/or activities.
Teachers wanting more information should contact education director Maria Lester (email@example.com).
