With Rigor for All: Teaching the Classics to Contemporary Students is by Carol Jago. A must read for all teachers of English. Along with Nancie Atwell's In the Middle and Kelly Gallagher's Readicide, I will be gifting a copy of this book to every student teacher I have from now on. This book is a quick and easy read, but is chock full of convincing rationale for teaching the classics to middle and high school students. Ms. Jago also addresses way to make the teaching of classics easier for students and teachers. It offers advice on testing, holding students accountable, and teaching them to love classics, or at least understand their importance and how to process them.
