A podcast about English literature texts for senior high students. I am a teacher of senior English and Literature in Melbourne, Australia but have also taught at schools in New South Wales and in Oxford in the UK. If you're wondering about the title of the podcast, it's a reference to my name, Mrs Watkins and what many regard as the best opening line to a book: "Call me Ishmael" from Herman Melville's "Moby Dick".

Close Reading for All
Listened to the minseries covering “The Truman Show” as prep-work for my own film podcast. Great homework if you’re trying to internalize a work you’re either speaking or writing on.
This is a very helpful and clear podcast from a very experienced teacher.
