Editorial Reviews


With the teaching of literature besieged on so many fronts, Chadwick and Grassie have come to our rescue. They offer compelling evidence for the claim that the prose and poetry can indeed change lives … particularly when adolescent readers have able and inspired guides to show them the way. --Carol Jago, Past President of NCTE and author of For Rigor for All: Meeting Common Core Standards for Reading Literature

Chadwick and Grassie s work couldn t be more necessary or more impactful, presenting us with an approach to teaching literature that is responsive to students, texts, and the landscapes in which the two come together. The rich ideas here equip teachers to reskill students into the active and purposeful work of literary questioning, thinking and response. Offering us classroom models of what it means to question, read closely, re-read with purpose and then read connectively, this is a book that helps us see how the skills we teach using literature transcend the texts we teach. This is a book that challenges and guides us to re-see what it means to be a teacher of literature and a teacher of students who read. --Sara Kajder, Literacy Education Professor, University of Georgia and author of Adolescents and Digital Literacies

Jocelyn Chadwick and John Grassie have given us a book that is both expansive and precise, visionary and incisive. Using voices of teachers to connect us to crucial questions of literacy, this book serves both as a compass and a companion for teachers who crave practical advice on the road to compelling instruction. --Sarah Brown Wessling, author of Supporting Students in a Time of Core Standards, Teacher Laureate for the Teaching Channel, and former National Teacher of the Year.

About the Author

Jocelyn A. Chadwick has been an English teacher for over thirty years - beginning at Irving High School in Texas and later moving on to the Harvard Graduate School of Education where she was a professor for nine years and still guest lectures. Dr. Chadwick also serves as a consultant for school districts around the country and assists English departments with curricula to reflect diversity and cross-curricular content. For the past two years, she has served as a consultant for NBC News Education's Common Core Project for Parents, ParentToolkit. In June 2015, Chadwick was elected Vice President for the National Council of Teachers of English. Throughout her career, she has published articles in leading academic journals, presented papers at scholarly conferences, and conducted teacher workshops around the country and abroad. Her many publications include The Jim Dilemma: Reading Race in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, "Making Characters Come Alive! Using Characters for Identification and Engagement," "Assessment: Our (Re) Inventing the Future of English," and her April 2015 book, Common Core: Paradigmatic Shift. Summing up her career, Dr. Chadwick says she was born to be an English teacher and will always be one.

John Grassie is a veteran broadcast journalist, with more than 25 years' experience producing news coverage, program series, and documentaries for Public Television, NBC News, and Discovery. During his broadcast career, Grassie's work received numerous awards for excellence in journalism. In making the transition to focusing on education, Grassie says he knew his next goal was moving from the TV control room to the classroom. That transition has taken him through lecturing at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Boston University on the impact and influence of informational programming on public policy. He has also written and lectured on the role of mass media in developing the emerging concept of digital literacy and its role in the classroom.
