Commentary on "Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, and a Dream," by H. G. Bissinger.
Smith, Kenneth M.
Through personal investigative reporting and compelling writing, H. G. Bissinger in "Friday Night Lights" (1991) explores the culture of high school football from a variety of perspectives including: students, parents, coaches, teachers, school boards, local politicians, community values regarding race, gender and education, regional history and the economy. Through powerful and evocative writing, he develops in depth the compelling issues and the personal sense of empathetic involvement with the players and coaches. This book represents a useful tool which teachers can use to provide students in high school with reading content with which they can identify, discuss, and write about in their journals or research in their own communities.
