The Eye of the Other: Reading Difference in Language and Literature.
Knopp, Katherine C.
Combining academic prose, some narrative, a poem, and some literary criticism, this project paper presents a theoretical framework for the literature base of the curriculum the teacher hopes to make operational on various levels over several years. The first section of the paper discusses the goals and various approaches of multicultural education. The second section focuses on how readers see, know, and create the world. The third section of the paper discusses in depth how a class worked through Toni Morrison's novel "The Bluest Eye." The fourth section "leaps" from linguistics to literature, discussing linguistic anchors in social space, the role of metaphors in generating vision and defining ways of seeing, and what all this has to do with reading. The fifth section of the paper offers two examples that seek to combine the goals of multicultural education with the academic rigor and cultural capital associated with authors like Shakespeare. Contains 75 notes and 55 references. (RS)
