Knitting lesson enhances English experience

Hastings High English teacher Carla Hedstrom shows her
class how to knit Tuesday at the school.

Walking into the English 10 classrooms at Hastings High this week, one just might find students knitting scarves and hats rather than reading and writing.

The students are reading the Charles Dickens classic "A Tale of Two Cities," a book that teacher Carla Hedstrom has been working diligently to make more accessible and understandable to her students.

"It's a hard book to read so I'm thinking of anything I can to help the kids make a connection to the book," Hedstrom said.
