I've been a HuffPost fan for quite awhile, but I must say that this article pushes my tolerance for giving voice to those who posted the tweets referenced in this article. Like other anti-intellectual insults, giving attention to the ignorant does no favors to those hoping to promote elevated thinking skills.
Though, a challenge is also there, I suppose, to reconsider our success with our attempts to make great literature more relevant and engaging, both of which could be done with any of the bashed titles mentioned.
My theory, if it's NOT the book then perhaps we should look to the students themselves, their parents, or maybe even to the effectiveness of our own methodologies. But, of course, that might be blasphemous to suggest.
