On First Reading Hidden Gems
Hello fellow readers! I have completed the first few chapters of Hidden Gems by Bomer and am very enthusiastic about what I am reading. I chose this book because I want to become a better responder to my freshman writing students. I believe in "reading like a writer" (what I think Bomer is encouraging students and teachers to do) and I love that Bomer asks students to read (great) writers to help them become the writers that they are. When Bomer asks teachers to read students papers the way we read great writers, she really shows how to value student writing. I can't wait to talk with you all about our fabulous book.
