Dr. Ackley earned a master's degree in English from Purdue University and a Ph.D. in English from Ball State University.

Review:

"PERSPECTIVES is unique in its writing discussion quality and accessibility, which keeps me coming back."

"I think it is a very effective reader for my freshman level courses that I teach. It is thorough and written in a style and manner that is engaging to the students."
