What Johnny SHOULD read

Now it's dark outside and I wanted to head home earlier, but the library just sent an email that a book is in and since I won't be on campus tomorrow, I should walk over to get it. E. D. Hirsch on Cultural Literacy. I think I don't agree with him entirely, but there might be something good to use for WR 121 in terms of the conversation about what people should know. This theory looks interesting. Apparently the question is "Cultural Literacy: Can it Work for You?"

The conversation has long been whether or not Johnny could or would read, but now it seems the question is what Johnny SHOULD read. I should be reading student papers, so that's what I'll do now.
