Evening Book Discussion 7 pm
February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This month’s book selection is Scan Artist by Marcia Biederman. The best-known educator of the twentieth century was a scammer in cashmere. But science showed that her method taught only skimming, with disastrous effects on comprehension—a fact Wood was aware of from early in her career. Fudging test results, and squelching critics, she founded a company that enrolled half a million. The course’s popularity endured even as evidence of its shortcomings continued to accumulate. This will be a virtual discussion. Books are available to borrow at the library.
