A Note from The Reviews Editor
Welcome to our Second Issue of Recursive Reviews!
I’m really thrilled that this group of reviewers reviewed these books–each has something to say to us now, in this moment, as we’re all doing our best in and out of our classrooms.
In this second issue, you’ll find:
- Sherri Spelic’s insightful and joyous review of Geeky Pedagogy,
- Steven Berg’s instructive appreciation of How We Read Now, and
- Danielle Hinrichs’ urgent and reflexive review of Pregnant Girl
I am thrilled to have these writers reviewing these books for our second issue, and I hope you are, too. If you want to write reviews for a future issue (or something for the general Recursive mag), please reach out.

Dr. Weaver, I was so excited to see this featured in the CETLOE newsletter this morning. I teach a graduate pedagogy course every Spring and look for new source material each year. I have been struggling to find a theme of focus and was waiting for inspiration to strike. I think these reviews will provide some much needed insight and great suggestions for my class. Thank you so much!
