"Getting Beyond 'I Like the Book': Creating Space for Critical Literacy in K - 6 Classrooms" (second edition) draws you into life in classrooms where students and teachers together use critical literacy as a framework for taking on local and global issues like racism and gender using books and everyday texts such as school posters and advertisements. This expanded second edition includes the following features: two additional content areas chapters - science and social studies - to emphasize that critical literacy is not just a part of the literacy curriculum; a new chapter on new technologies such as websites, videos, and podcasts and their impact on critical literacy; and, a fresh focus interspersed throughout the book on multimedia literacy and using multimedia text sets. In addition, reflection questions at the end of each chapter can help you connect the ideas in this book with your experiences. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
