NCTE Blog-Discerning Power Relationships — Toward a Critical Pedagogy

This is a particularly good post for us to review this week. Excellent set of questions to ask of any text, but esp. children’s and YA text constructions. If you haven’t signed up to receive the NCTE blog updates, I recommend that you do.

Those of you who are familiar with Freedman/Johnson’s title, Developing Critical Awareness at the Middle Level: Using Texts as Tools for Critique and Pleasure will find this a sympathetic post. KES
