Janelle Jose November 2, 2009 SSC 416 Book Response Retell First grade teacher Francesca is the lucky recipient of Kozol's stories from his real world experiences in the trenches. Kozol uses a realistic portrayal of what first year teachers can expect students to act, speak, and look like, the under privilege facilities in our nation's poorest schools, and the feeling of isolation that all new teachers face during their first year of teaching. He also talks about the issue of racial segregation due to a lack of diversity within communities and its existence in America's schools and speaks out about the backsliding into separate and unequal schools in this modern era of education. He writes instructive letter to Francesca to teach the young but learn from the old acknowledges the gravitational pull that young teachers experience toward one another. They choose to stick with their own kind and feel threatened, marginalized or stereotyped as unsuccessful by veteran educators in their buildings before making the attempt use these seasoned teachers as mentors. He urges young teachers to reach out and build relationships with the old guard in the school in order to become more effective and learn from the mistakes and trials of others. New teachers are missing out on valuable lessons when they overlook the human resources residing in their very own corridors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
