Jesse Stuart Reader, A 2003
A Jesse Stuart Reader: Stories & Poems. Junior High and High School teachers who wish to introduce their students to Jesse Stuart have a unique teaching tool available in A Jesse Stuart Reader. This 352-page book was designed as a classroom text, and consists of eighteen stories, twenty-six poems, and excerpts from three autobiographical books––God’s Oddling, The Thread That Runs So True, and The Year of My Rebirth.
An additional study and teaching aid is Ella DeMer’s 31-page “Commentary and Study Questions” section at the end of the book. A Jesse Stuart Reader (available only in paperback) is $15. Schools ordering 30 or more copies may purchase the book at $9 per copy, a 40% discount. Although most classroom sets are purchased for grades 7-12, this book is effective at the collegiate level, too.
