Critical Literacy Education
By driggero, Updated
Many traditional classrooms do not practice critical literacy. Many classroom teachers believe reading is solely meaning making; however, it is so much more. Students should be encouraged to hold discussions about what they are reading with their peers, as well as with the classroom teacher. Students should have the opportunity to read and discuss "sensitive" subjects in the classroom such as race, sexuality, or gender issues. Students can then take what they have learned in the reading and discussions out into the world outside of the classroom. Here students can work to change inequality or other social issues in the world. When using critical literacy students will become more connected to one another and the world around them. Critical literacy allows students to be exposed to issues and topics that are relevant in their everyday life!
