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.
Future plans include creating curriculum guides meeting 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 the director of The John Updike Childhood Home, Susan Guay: firstname.lastname@example.org.
