C.J. Gorrell ENGL101 The author of the reading Hidden Intellectualism , Gerald Graff, writes about the school systems failure to recognize students hidden intellectual abilities. Gerald Graff believes that for many young students that appear to have excellent “street smarts”, but limited intellect in the classroom, the true issue is that schools don’t realize that “street smarts” is really hidden intellect. He goes on to argue that schools need to realize this, and start forming curriculums that take advantage of this interest. His audience is primarily the school systems, and other educators who control what is being taught to students and how it is being taught. A second audience that his article would perhaps interest is the students who have similar issues as those the Graff talks about. They would be interested, because the article may help them realize their condition, and perhaps how to manipulate it to their advantage.
