It was the same the next day. But the day after, when I called on him to read, Gary decided to give it a try. He made it through the ﬁrst few words. As soon as he had trouble, he ﬂung the book across the room.
Later on in the book, Marva Collins writes Since my first year of teaching, my students have always learned to love Shakespeare. Even the boys who picked their teeth with switchblades and dared other teacher to make it safely to their cars in the afternoon always begged for more. At Delano I had to sneak in the lessons on Shakespeare, because they were never included in the curriculum prescribed by the Board of Education.
Collins was known for applying classical education, in particular the Socratic method, modified for use in primary schools, successfully with impoverished students. Collins criticized the teaching of the students, not the students themselves. She wrote a number of manuals, books and motivational tracts describing her history and methods. In 1982 and in subsequent articles, Collins has been criticized by George N. Schmidt from Substance News, who claims that Collins' work was fraudulent. Collins denied any fraud. At the time, Collins had both supporters and detractors.
