Redefining "Public" according to Dewey

This is very research-ey but an interesting video clip with an actor playing John Dewey and discussing the idea of what "public" means.  
About 7 minutes long and worthy of dinner conversation.

Lenses on Reading

I can't say enough good things about this book.  If you are a reading coach, literacy professor, or interested in getting a reading should read this book.  I want to use it as the text the next time I teach Theories and Models of Reading.  I loved the clear writing, the chronological layout of reading theories and the practical application to the classroom.  Buy it!
