About the Author:

Daria Plumb has taught English and social studies at Riverside Academy (formerly Dundee Alternative High School) since 1994. She has also taught survey classes in children s literature at Washtenaw Community College and Eastern Michigan University. Plumb is actively involved in the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of the NCTE (ALAN), and serves on the editorial review board for The ALAN Review. Her 2007 article for English Leadership Quarterly, New Rules for Old Lit: Connecting At-Risk Kids to the Classics, Commando Style, was named honorable mention for Best Article of the Year. Plumb shares many of her strategies for working with at-risk teens and reluctant readers on her website Get Em Reading.

Review:

In addition to commonsense commando advice that frees a teacher from employing the same methods used for eons in teaching, Plumb s book is filled with reference sources, teaching tips, and suggestions for partnering with others, including librarians! Required reading for all English teachers. --Pam Spencer Holley
