- Words No Bars Can Hold: Literacy Learning in Prison
by Deborah Appleman
The students’ work, through which they probe and develop their identities as readers and writers, illuminates the transformative power of literacy. Appleman argues for the importance of educating the incarcerated, and explores ways to interrupt the increasingly common journey from urban schools to our nation’s prisons. From the sobering endpoint of what scholars have called the “school to prison pipeline,” she draws insight from the narratives and experiences of those who have traveled it.

I really appreciate the important work you’re doing, and I wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Jared Horvath and I am a cognitive neuroscientist and lecturer at the University of Melbourne with a speciality in learning and memory.
I have written a popular-science book that explores the neuroscience of learning and teaching. The book is called Stop Talking, Start Influencing: 12 Insights from Brain Science to Make Your Message Stick (publisher: Exisle Press, ISBN-10: 1925335909). I'm really excited about this book and think it'll really benefit educators, parents, and students.
This is why I am writing - I was wondering if you might be able/willing to consider having a read of the book with the idea of possibly generating a review for Teachers College Record? In return, I'd be happy to write an article for you as well.
Let me know your thoughts and, if you're keen, I'd be happy to send a copy or shoot over a digital PDF.
Thank you in advance for your consideration - I truly hope to hear from you soon!
All my best,
