For Educators

The RJA plans to serve educators in the United States and around the world with this site. This section is designed for teachers who want to incorporate work by and about Jeffers into their high school, undergraduate, or graduate curriculum. It will include sample syllabi, discussion items, and other teaching resources (see K-12 for links to the educational materials created by the National Endowment for the Arts’ Big Read initiative). Those seeking bibliographical information on scholarly and critical works may look under Resources.

RJA Executive Director Erika Koss will manage the Education resources.  Please contact her if you are a teacher with syllabi, lesson plans, writing exercises, or essays that you would like to publish here. Erika welcomes comments or suggestions from teachers and students of all levels and ages. Write to her at
