Book Review “How I Resist”

Book Review of "How I Resist" essay anthology. #bookreview #teens #englishclass #highschool

How I Resist: Activism and Hope for a New Generation Edited by: Maureen Johnson would be a great book for a high school Civics, English or Government classes.  It would also be a benefit to high school classroom and school libraries.  I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own, and I was not additionally compensated for this post beyond the complimentary book.

This book contains short themed essays by several famous people including authors that teens would be familiar with Jacqueline Woodson and Jason Reynolds. 


If I taught high school I would pull out my favourite essays to teach with my English classes. Students enjoy reading short contemporary pieces so this collection would be a great addition to a syllabus. Click the title above to grab your copy today.
