An Awesome Variety
on May 11, 2008
College freshmen hate reading. They don't read instructions, they don't read their class schedules, and they don't read textbooks. However, if it's short enough to read in a few minutes and controversial enough to cause an argument, they will read. That's the great thing about the Seagull Readers. It offers an enormous variety of topics from authors whose writing spans centuries. It's a great way to introduce non-readers to the idea of analyzing writing. Take a peek - it's entertaining reading just for pleasure too.
