Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Waxler and Hall argue that literacy is the only form of education worth pursuing. They do this while undermining the arts and the rest of education. They gather and regurgitate anecdotal evidence (not that either of them really understands research) in seemingly no particular order. Ironically one of the worst books I have ever read. The only reason you're looking at this review is because you have to buy it. I'm telling you that you don't.

Format: Hardcover
The book argues that reading literature and discussing it in the classroom should be central to 21st century education. Literary narrative shapes us as we shape it. Through reading and discussing good literary narrative, we stay deeply engaged with the best in ourselves and find location in the world. Through literature, we are on an ongoing quest to discover who we are.

I am a grad student and HAD to buy this book. But i do like it and it definitely relates to students i have in a low income area. Also the main theme can be used in every day life.
