Teaching Global Literature in Elementary Classrooms : A Critical Literacy and Teacher Inquiry Approach, Paperback / softback Book

Teaching Global Literature in Elementary Classrooms : A Critical Literacy and Teacher Inquiry Approach Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Demonstrating the power of teaching global literature from a critical literacy perspective, this book explores the ways that K-6 educators can infuse diverse texts into their classrooms and find support for their endeavours in teacher inquiry communities.

Through carefully analyzed, ethnographically informed portraits of classroom life alternating with teachers' own accounts of their teaching and learning experiences, it demonstrates how students are moved to question, debate, and take action in response to global texts.

This multi-vocal work both emerges from and responds to tensions and debates related to the purpose and practice of literature education in a time of Common Core State Standards.
