Among Johndan's Texts

The Book Wheel

The book-wheel reminds us that we have long felt a contradictory need to not simply appreciate texts but also put them to work: becoming literate is a complicated, often contentious activity. . . .

What happens when our texts become actively social? (Johnson-Eilola, 2010, p. 37)
