An interesting professional resource for teachers, especially writing teachers, since Schaafsma explains how students were encouraged to write without having teachers' values imposed upon them. . . . It is fascinating to see how the theories of writing are put into practice in this challenging urban setting."--Kliatt

Schaafsma (English education, U. of Wisconsin) explores the challenges of teaching literacy in a racially divided society, focusing on the importance of storytelling as an interactive experience for both the teller and the listener. He draws on the students' writing from a 1989 summer literacy program in Detroit and interviews with the teachers afterward. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
