"Here is an important and stirring effort to connect the moral and social imagination of young people to their storytelling imaginations and capabilities-and to do so with the encouragement of their teachers. Here is human inwardness given the classroom's sanctioned enablement-students become their own teachers, eager to tell others what they have observed and considered (their narrative growth thereby tendered, become an instrument of heightened awareness and reflection in others-their teachers as well as their fellow students)."
Dr. Robert Coles, James Agee Professor of Social Ethics at Harvard
