Back in July, beach chairs gave way to backpacks on store shelves since many students start school in mid-August, bringing summer “learning loss” to a halt. This week we present an array of books for students, teachers, parents, librarians, and concerned citizens. Topics range from first-day jitters to trenchant analyses of, and prescriptions for, improving how students learn in this country.
Speaking of “learning loss”, with the end of The Daily Show on August 6th, and the advent of the Republican debates, we’ve collected books to take the sting out of missing Jon Stewart. Authored by celebrities, journalists, and Donald Trump himself, they offer humor and insight to bolster readers during election season.
