Discover the potential of children’s literature as a tool to teach critical literacy in K–6 classrooms.
This book tells the story of eight teachers who prompted students to examine critically the meaning of the texts they read. By putting this critical edge on children’s talk about books, the teachers enabled students to think about and act on social issues. You’ll see critical literacy in action through classroom vignettes, “Reflection Points,” and examples of students’ work.
