Children's Literature as Tools of and for Activism: Reflections of JoLLE's inaugural Activist Literacies Conference
Graff, Jennifer M.
Journal of Language and Literacy Education, v9 n1 p136-143 Spr 2013
Inspired by her attendance at the inaugural JoLLE Activist Literacies conference, the author ruminates on the ways in which children's literature and activitist literacies are inextricably wed and manifested in myriad ways. References to a sampling of children's literature spanning genres and grade levels, websites, and affiliated articles provide opportunities for readers to further recognize how children's literature can be both tools of and for activist thought and action.
