Young Children Manifest Spiritualities in Their Hip-Hop Writing
Norton, Nadjwa E. L.
Education and Urban Society, v46 n3 p329-351 May 2014
In this article, the author combines multicultural feminist critical theories with the voices of Black and Latina/Latino young spiritual children to extend culturally responsive teaching. The author illuminates how children use their hip-hop writing to construct themselves as people who communicate with God, choose spiritual content for their hip-hop songs, and attest to God's abilities to help people. By helping in-service and preservice teachers increase their awareness and understandings of children's spiritualities and spiritual practices, one can (re)vision the policies, pedagogies, methodologies, and structures that are, can, and should occur in educational institutions.
