What do you love about this book!

What I really like about this book is the way the process is outlined. I have positive and negative comments about pacing, but I love the way the authors keep using and referring to the same way of teaching deeply.

Another aspect of the book that I love: Chapter 6, Narrative Nonfiction as Literary Journalism. I really enjoyed the activities in this chapter. I can definitely see myself applying this in class as well as in the newspaper club I sponsor.

I started reading the book a few days ago, and I was struck by the authors' reasons for writing the book, mainly because they are very similar to why I was drawn to the topic.
