Textbook Follows Twisting Trail
I currently have this book in my college composition class, and I have various feelings about it. It is targeted towards students who have trouble with reading comprehension and remembering what they just read, among other things. Some of the stories are "all right", but it disappoints me that most of the authors say everything that needs to be said in the first several pages, yet ramble on for about 30 or 40 pages. I don't think they have enough poetry in the book, mostly essays. The best essay I have read (so far. We just began the book a few weeks ago) has been "Our Secret" by Susan Griffin. "Ways of Reading" is better than some textbooks I have read, they just need to add more spice to the next edition which is the 9th.
