Emil's Academic Background:

Emil Cicogna began teaching in the New York City Public Schools in 1987, and is still involved in education today as an online instructor at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, in the College of Education. Many teachers face the dilemma of using literature and textbooks that are too difficult for many of their students to read. A Sign of the Times was written to teach history through literature to Middle-School and High School students who have struggled reading traditional literature in their English / Language Arts classes. Currenly, Emil works with many student- teachers online to help them develop strategies to reach their struggling students in every level of K-12 education.
