When are Schools Going to Change?

Today I read, Looking for Alaska by John Green.  (I was lucky enough to catch a cold so I had a great excuse to stay in bed all day and read!)

It was a fabulous, captivating book!

John Green provided some questions he was asked via Twitter and Tumblr.  (So cool.)  A student asked, "What were two major symbols in the book and who was the enemy?"  I SHUTTERED as I read this.  If my high school teacher had asked me to answer these questions in an essay, I probably would have hated the book.

There are so many deeper, and more interesting, aspects of the book to discuss (and I will, with my bookclub). When are schools going to change?!?

  1. Sounds like a good book. The perennial question. When are schools going to change? I challenge myself each school year and say, 'What am I doing to make a change for my students?' It is a start.
