Publisher's Description

Kay McSpadden's classroom in rural York, South Carolina is windowless, water stained, gray ? and the scene of something amazing. Inside, slackers stay late to wrestle with Socrates. A teenage mother discovers Shakespeare. And a shy special ed student wins applause for powerful public speaking. In Notes from a Classroom, McSpadden introduces her unforgettable students. She chronicles their encounters with literature. And she shares what she's learned in 30 years of trial (and error ) in the classroom: How to turn teen diffidence, bravado and apathy into a lifelong passion for learning.

Publisher's Weekly

The latest in a recent spat of from-the-trenches teacher memoirs, this one is notable for McSpadden’s clear-eyed understanding of teenagers, and her compassion for the underprivileged students she works with everyday. A collection of McSpadden’s biweekly columns in The Charlotte Observer, these 70-some pieces share a knack for the well-observed detail, be it the “sadness” of a young man reciting a Sara Teasdale poem that quiets a “class of wriggly sophomores,” or the startling significance of a student’s note, placed among a student exhibit of photos they took of their homes, reading “We don’t got a camera. Sorry.” Though it suffers when McSpadden’s attention turns away from her classroom to other, more sentimental topics, and the brevity of unexpanded newspaper columns can wear thin when reading straight through, most of these snappy lessons feature plenty of hard-earned wisdom, gentle humor and memorable student portraits.
