Good foundation reading for teachers looking to include more personally relevant writing in their classrooms. Also includes some interesting discussion of whether there is any validity in the English Lit cannon. Delves into some of the issues that can come up in a culturally relevant classroom. Not a collection of June Jordan's poetry. This one was written for people who teach and/or lead writing groups. ( )
