Every English dept. chair needs to read this book. What do you teach and why do you teach it? Stotsky's book has helped us create a stronger and more coherent curriculum.
Stop reading this review, log into your Amazon account and buy the book. I can only hope you are an Amazon Prime member because the book will be in your hands even sooner.
