This is a well written book, which provides a historical perspective to Trujillo's iron fist rule of the Dominican Republic. The author does a great job improvising for the "unknown" in the life of the Mirabal sisters.
This is a timeless classic. Wonderful to listen to the story again. I had not read it since College.
This is an interesting book on how the brain works. The author uses real life examples and provides insight on how humans learn. As an educator, I loved the connections and implications to teaching at all grade levels.
It reads like fiction! Wow!
This book has a lot of "real" new teacher issues. It is great for any new teacher of an urban classroom. Don't get caught up in the author's soap box.....otherwise it does provide some good suggestions for a new teacher.
When reading other works by this author, I don't like the negative perspective Kozol has of "all" of our schools. Ordinary Resurrections is different. Although it still gives you a good idea of what it is like in some of our schools, it also gives you the good in our children and in some of our schools.
I found myself listening to The Scarecrow every possible minute. It was hard to turn it off. I finished it in less than a week.
This is a thriller! I remember going to the movies to see it in the big screen, but the movie version falls way short than the book. I recommend it to those that love a great mystery.
This is an excellent bopok for those that love baseball and especially for those that loved those Brooklyn Dodgers! This is a grand slam!
I think Jonathan Kozol should spend more time providing suggestions and recommendations instead of just ripping the educators who work so hard to get their students the best education possible.
