Editorial Reviews

Review

"Those with a vested interest in the education of American youth--in other words, everyone who has reached the age of reason--should read this book and share it with others." - American School Board Journal


"Rather than dwelling on the problem, Gallagher centers on explaining concrete ways schools can improve literature teaching, focusing on comprehension and producing lifelong readers." - Catholic Library World


"Readicide is an intriguing look at many possible solutions to the problem of the decline of reading in American schools." - Midwest Book Review

About the Author

Kelly, a "baseballoholic" and a self-described expert at negotiating airports, is in his 33rd year of teaching at the high school level.

He currently teaches at Magnolia High School in Anaheim, California.

He believes that "there is no greater pleasure than teaching someone something." Teaching is "artistic, it matters a great deal, and I can never get the job down perfectly."

Kelly thinks that professional development should treat teachers as such - professionals. "I know in the classroom that good things happen when my students have meaningful discussions. I know as a teacher myself that my craft sharpens when I am given the opportunity to have meaningful discussions with my peers. And let's have a laugh or two while we are at it."

Writing his six books for Stenhouse was a solitary experience. "Though I have written outlines prior to each of my books, I have yet to follow any of them step-by-step. That is why I find writing rewarding - because the act of writing itself generates new thinking, and new thinking is always exciting."
