Clueless in academe : how schooling obscures the life of the mind by Gerald Graff( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an essential book for teachers and others interested in education, an eminent scholar looks at the academic world from a much-overlooked perspective: that of students who don't get it.

Finally, Graff offers a wealth of practical suggestions for making the culture of ideas and arguments more accessible, showing how students and the wider public can enter the debates that permeate their lives."--Jacket

Updated with a new preface by the author that addresses many of the provocative arguments raised by its initial publication, Professing Literature remains an essential h
