As one reviewer indicated, as a teacher, you have to be prepared to deal with the typical freshman responses to difficult readings. BUT engaging presentations, and collaborative reading assignments do pay off in student understanding and appreciation of the challenges in academic reading and writing. To paraphrase the introduction to the text, students need to be prepared to treat the essays provided as invitations to conversation that demand they respond and make their own marks on the thoughts of the "expert" essayists.
