    Life As A Metaphor

    Life As A Metaphor

    If you are not willing to believe that man can talk to cats, that the sky can rain with sardines and eels, or that Johnny Walker is more than the man on the whisky bottle, this book is probably not for you. Haruki Murakami is an author who creates his own world with his own rules. The Japanese author is known for his wild imagination and deeply metaphorical, riddle-like plots that often leave the readers with more questions than answers. In his novel Kafka on the Shore, published in 2002, Murakami ponders the connection between fate and free will, consciousness and dreams, and isolation and loss.

    The Ultimate Problem with Reading Challenges

    The Ultimate Problem with Reading Challenges

    I love Goodreads Reading Challenges. I’ve been participating in them for two years now, and there are so many things I enjoy about them — how you can see all your books clearly, how you don’t feel alone because so many people take part in it, how Goodreads summarises your reading at the end of the year.

    What Makes a Children’s Story Good?

    Children love stories. Stories serve as a great source of both entertainment and education to kids. However, it is generally known that compared to that of the adults, the literary taste of children is more difficult to please and satisfy. In order for a story to be well-received by the young audience, it should be good. But what makes a children’s story good exactly?

    Future-proofing our children

    Future-proofing our children

    "A person’s freedom of learning is part of his freedom of thought, even more basic than his freedom of speech. If we take from someone his right to decide what he will be curious about, we destroy his freedom of thought. We say, in effect, you must think not about what interests and concerns you but about what interests and concerns us.” John Holt

    The Wednesday Wars

    The Wednesday Wars

    I have been a fan of Gary D. Schmidt for a long time. My first introduction to him as an author was during my YA Literature class in college when we read his novel, “Okay for Now.” These books are written with young adults in mind, but I find that a lot of the topics that are addressed in Schmidt’s work are very adult in nature: war, racism, mental health, death, and teen parenthood just to name a few.

    Michael Rose's 'Lives on the Boundary'

    Michael Rose's 'Lives on the Boundary'

    In his literacy narrative, Lives on the Boundary, Michael Rose writes on the inadequacies that the American Education system has when dealing with students from vastly different backgrounds. This idea has been incorporated, not only to the localities of the public schools or higher education institutions, but also on the political landscape that is currently happening in the United States. In many cases, such as Khasru’s case in Alex Moore’s Khasru's English Lesson: Ethnocentricity and Response to Student Writing and the Mexican immigrant’s case that Josh Cuevas focuses on in his article Hispanic Acculturation in the U.S.: Examining the Relationship between Americans' Ethnocentricity and Education, the political landscape that American politicians and its citizens create, profoundly influence the views that educators in America have against students who develop from different backgrounds. Rose observes many educators judging students due to their preconceptions, the political landscape of America and American values:

    The Other Wes Moore

    The Other Wes Moore

    I came across this book while preparing a thematic unit on survival for my students, and I thought that it seamlessly coincided with the conversation currently happening throughout the country. Survival takes on many different shapes and forms, as my students will learn, but this particular tale of survival shows just how closely we are connected to one another, and--whether you want to call it fate, chance, or even luck--how the smallest slivers of choice and opportunity have to power to drastically alter every aspect of the human condition.
