Transcript of How American High School Students are Loathing Literature

The English curriculum is weak and fragile. I agree with Francine Prose #weakcurriculum How American High School Students learn to Loathe Literature Ethos:
Students handicapped due to the lack of literature
Students are not challenging themselves with more difficult literature
Students not eager enough to learn more and expand their horizon Logos:
