Synopsis

This book offers a new vision for teaching literacy to adolescents that moves beyond reading for its own sake and toward reading as a way to motivate students to connect with their world. The authors draw on the voices of adolescent readers to discover how teachers can encourage their students to explore their identities, face injustices, and contribute to their communities. Readers learn how to incorporate the core issues of a socially responsible pedagogy into their own curricula to support strong literacy skills across the content areas. Each chapter includes reflection questions that move the reader toward personal and professional development, along with classroom applications that provide specific strategies and ideas for engaging literacy projects.This dynamic book:Outlines a socially responsible pedagogy that will assist teachers in creating meaningful experiences to motivate even the most disengaged students.Takes a critical approach to teaching and learning that recognises the importance of explicitly addressing issues of power and identity. Examines effective school-wide models that promote a climate of responsibility toward the larger society.
