Review of “Talking Back and Looking Forward: An Educational Revolution in Poetry and Prose.”

If you have a chance, head over to TCR.org, Teachers College Record, and read a review of the book, “Talking Back and Looking Forward: An Educational Revolution in Poetry and Prose.”

Listen to what Patricia Edwards and Lisa Domke say about it….

“Typical academic writing is characterized by prose that tries to be direct, often contains an outline of important points the authors follow and tends to deemphasize emotions and expression. Paul C. Gorski, Rosanna M. Salcedo, and Julie Landsman’s edited volume Talking Back and Looking Forward: An Educational Revolution in Poetry and Prosepushes against these norms. This book is a collection of poems, memoirs, musings, photographs, and comics from educators and writers commenting upon, challenging, and asking readers to consider the current state of United States education. The text becomes a way for its authors to convey their messages in alternative ways to traditional academic writing.”
