Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The main lesson I learned from this book is that as educators and academics, we have skills that much of our population takes for granted. We certainly do not have an excuse for students being bored and unengaged with schoolwork. Part of our job is to help students learn the language of academia.

Overall, this book is really interesting and is a great part of my graduate program. No worries here about overly dense text. Simple and to the point.
