Responding to Literature through Storytelling, Artifacts and Multigenre Writing Practices: Explorations of Cultures and Self
Varga-Dobai, Kinga
Literacy, v49 n2 p77-83 Apr 2015
This manuscript describes how innovative literacy practices such as multigenre writing and artifactual critical literacy have been used to tap into pre-service teachers' cultural identities while responding to literature. In the process of responding to literature, personal experience is crucial; therefore, in this study, I focused on the relationship between that personal experience and cultural identity. The multigenre writings or artifact narratives of pre-service teachers in response to realistic fiction books became extensions of those real-life stories and provided information about the students' cultural background. Thus, the study also investigates the possibilities these new tools offer for intercultural learning.
