Less is More: Teaching Literature With Short Texts, Grades 6-12

 
44

Kimberly Hill Campbell defines several kinds of short texts. She then applies the same reading strategies to all of them. If you want to know about strategies, read Strategies That Work by Harvey and Goudvis or anything by Laura Robb. The majority of the recommended reads in this book, particularly the short stories, are tired and over-anthologized. The most agonizing thing about this book, though, is that Campbell never misses a chance to reference how she rose above the texts and curriculums imposed upon her to become a special teacher. This book is absolutely not worth reading.
