Those People

Those People

August 15, 2018

Dear WinkWord Readers,

A group of graduate students and I wrote and published this piece, Those People, in 1997.  Sadly, it seems more relevant today.  It is rather long, but I so wanted to capture the oral history and graphic drawings of  Mimi, and of course, this is not her real name. 

Teacher educators, I know that some of you are using my materials as you create your syllabi. This is one for lots of different classes.  Of course, a reference is always appreciated.

It all began so simply. . .  



The next issue of WinkWorld will be my review of Comprehensible and  Compelling: The Causes and Effects of Free Voluntary Reading (2018) by Stephen D. Krashen, Sy-Ying Lee, and Christy Lao, published by Libraries Unlimited/ABC-CLIO.

    I love this piece! And to think it was written 21 years ago. Reflecting on this article and the present time in our nation’s development-it makes me sad. What has happened to those seeds? Many have grown to mature and play a part in social justice and yet the divisive air seems to permeate and choke out the affirmative development. Thank you for posting.
