Professor Jeff Cravello has a unique solution to the high priced texts that could be used for his courses. Rather than requiring expensive anthologies “the majority of [his] texts are trade paper backs.” Professor Cravello explained that “Apart from my core rhetoric’s, I avoid using any text I can’t find on Amazon.com for under $20.00.” Professor Cravello’s urge to provide his students with more economically pleasing alternatives demonstrates his significant efforts to find solutions for more affordable learning.
