The teaching version inserts the notes right into the middle of the book, which throws off the page count and makes reference sort of unweildy. I didn't think all the sections would be all that useful for my beginning comp class, and the table of content was sort of awkward as well. Still, there are some good readings here; I especially like the student essay from the student who participated in Occupy Wall Street.
One more complaint: the study questions, while t This book has an awkward format. One more complaint: the study questions, while thorough, are divided up and numbered in an annoying way. I will use this material sparingly. Aug 13, Joanne rated it really liked it. Read the newest version my ninth grade homework for the summer lol.
