This popular text articulates a powerful theory of critical literacy―in all its complexity. Critical literacy practices encourage students to use language to question the everyday world, interrogate the relationship between language and power, analyze popular culture and media, understand how power relationships are socially constructed, and consider actions that can be taken to promote social justice. By providing both a model for critical literacy instruction and many examples of how critical practices can be enacted in daily school life in elementary and middle school classrooms, Creating Critical Classrooms meets a huge need for a practical, theoretically based text on this topic.

Christine Leland is Professor of Literacy, Culture, and Language Education in the School of Education at Indiana University-Purdue University, USA.

Review:

"Creating Critical Classrooms is one of those rare finds. It has the perfect balance of theory―in ways that preservice teachers can understand―along with real ways to "do" theory in classrooms with children."

Lisa Scherff, Florida State University, USA

"As immorality and insanity continue to permeate the world of education, and the world in general, Creating Critical Classrooms will become an increasingly vital and crucial text in helping learners, teachers, and citizens understand and analyze the material forces at work in society while also connecting that intellectual work to the much needed interventions required to carry out positive structural transformations on pathways toward creating more humanized and humanizing systems and institutions...before it is too late."

Doug Morris, Eastern New Mexico University, USA
