April 19, 2011 – Don’t know much…

Good insights passed on.

Today I RID this book about history as written in classroom textbooks around the world.

I really liked this book. I think there’s so much to be gained, for example, by learning how British textbooks cover the American revolution; how Korean textbooks cover the Cuban missle crisis, etc.

As I RID it today, I remind myself to always read with an eye towards the bias/POV of the writer. It’s something I always think about when I read a newspaper, but don’t always stay so mindful of when I read a nonfiction book, etc.

Here’s to a mindful eye.
