Book Review Explanation
Book Review Questions/Form
We are constantly bombarded by information. We live in an Age of Information. Books, books, and more books, but never enough time to read them all (as verified by the books overflowing throughout my office and house). Just because the information is in a book, does not necessarily make it more "true" or more "factual." Because many of you like to read, you will undoubtedly find a number of interesting books relating to your coursework. A book review is one creative measure you can do. Evaluate the book by answering the questions below.
Submit your book review in hard copy, (do NOT e-mail it to me). You are encouraged to submit your book review well before the "final absolute deadline" in order to allow some time to dialogue with me. This is a critical part of your book review. If you have any questions, refer to the above explanation or just ask me.
1. Was this book pre-approved?
2. The Heading
3. The Review
4. Interrelating Theory, Policy and Practice
5. What is the most important "lesson" learned from this book? Why
Note: Your book review should be 2-3 pages double-spaced typed. Do not e-mail your book review to me.
