MEDIA REVIEWS

"Alan Block's beautiful new book helps revitalize education by helping us remember some of what we have lost, and it speaks in a voice that is both intimate and studied. In the winds of this text, like Alan's earlier books, education is redemptive and study is prayer. These reminders are timely and true." - Dr. David Jardine, Professor of Education, University of Calgary

"Alan Block's new book is an intense and elegant meditation on his own pedagogical journey as both teacher and student.Drawing on his rich, personal, professional, and religious experiences and revelations, Block adds his powerful and ever-present voice to the complicated conversation that is now curriculum studies.This book is well worth sustained attention." - Dr. Greg Dimtriadis, Professor of Education, University at Buffalo

"This book is engaging, scholarly and deeply gratifying. Most importantly, it returns the work of teaching to the intellect, aspirations and realities of the adults who teach, liberating teaching from infantilization and from its exile in the audit culture of tests, outcomes, gains and losses." - Madeleine Grumet, Professor of Education and Communication Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"Block's is a rare entry into the literature of this field. Instead of an anonymous, disembodied voice emitting platitudinous generalities from on high, Block speaks to the reader in an engagingly idiosyncratic manner. As an educator of some 35 years, with experience as both a high school teacher and university-based teacher-educator, his views on such current and controversial topics as the federal No Child Left Behind legislation and high-stakes testing in general have a special credibility." - CHOICE
