In his latest book, “Lit Up,” New Yorker staff writer David Denby puzzles why video games and social media have crowded out time for serious reading by teenagers. So Denby went back to school, sitting in on a 10th grade English class for an entire school year to discover the value to high school students of Sylvia Plath, Samuel Beckett, Aldous Huxley and, of course, William Shakespeare. Denby’s book may be missing an answer about the future of student literacy, a New York Times review in February argues, but even so, “[Denby] illustrates the irreplaceable role of great flesh-and-blood teachers who unlock knowledge day in and day out for students who otherwise wouldn’t have access to it.”
