Rain Taxi in the Classroom

Rain Taxi Review of Books intends these pedagogy pages and lesson-plan ideas to help teachers facilitate the often overlooked but important process of writing a persuasive critical evaluation. While we know that teaching students to write book reviews is not the most common practice in a writing classroom, it can serve as a highly effective means of accomplishing at least two essential outcomes, developing critical thinking and improving both writing and reading skills.

From the outset, your students will find Rain Taxi exciting and attractive—a cutting-edge literary review, without a hint of stodginess, that nonetheless upholds a high and serious literary purpose. Its attention is regularly spread across genres, including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels. This affords a wide variety of inviting opportunities for analysis and comparison, and will stimulate efforts to write a review that manages to be informative and interesting, while at the same time allowing for expression of a personal point of view.
