Description: Critical literacy is about more than reading a text critically-it's about helping students see beyond the surface of what's familiar and comfortable. As educators, we teach more than just content-we teach ways of thinking. As a result, we must lean away from teaching practices that tell students what to think and instead focus on providing them with language and lenses that support their deepened, more nuanced understandings about texts and the world.
In this ILA Webinar, we'll ground ourselves in critical literacy pedagogies and explore writing about reading strategies that support students' powerful expression of ideas. By trying on critical literacy lenses such as positioning, microaggressions, power, and resistance, and applying them to a variety of texts, we can support students in reading, analyzing, and evaluating literature and their lives.
