Editorial Reviews

Review

"Gritter, Schoon-Tanis and Althoff offer an approach to scaffolding and facilitating literature discussion that is at once engaging, democratic and responsive to adolescents’ varying affinities with popular culture. Indeed, Shakespeare and popular culture can comingle in the English language arts classroom, and the authors suggest highly accessible pedagogical moves that will surely situate this book as a welcome addition to English teachers’ libraries."

--Janine Certo, Associate Professor of Language and Literacy, College of Education, Michigan State University

"The long tradition of hooking kids into literature and reading is expanded and detailed in this book. The authors are clearly grounded in every-day, literature-based discussion and they do a great job of helping beginners and experienced teachers alike understand the art of discussion, from popular culture into challenging texts. The book is a nice balance of theory and discussion practice."

--Mark W. Conley, Professor of Literacy, The University of Memphis
