    I think you've got the essence, which is do whatever you can to impress the girl. However, it's ironic given the outcome of the novel.

    According to international rankings, Canda's average high school student's reading and writing skills are apparently the best in the English and French speaking world (It has declined in recent years...

    Decolonizing a classroom is not simply about cutting out white European males. Whether we like it or not our classrooms have changed. I look at my students in a first year survey class, very few of...
