Educators & Students
More than 60 universities have adopted Enrique's Journey as their freshman or all-campus read. Many high schools have also added the book to their curricula.
Sharon Harris, English Teacher at Warren Township High School, said of using Enrique's Journey, "... the first year I taught EJ, I taught grammar with a workbook and embedded grammar lessons within the EJ unit. Students would hide their EJ books beneath their grammar books ... Students were 'sneaking' their EJ books in class! Ever since then, every class of students has enjoyed EJ just as much. EJ is powerful, informative, moving, and teachable."
