"Goin' for Broke": Reaping the Rewards of Teaching toward Cultural and Linguistic Diversity
Haddix, Marcelle
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v20 p83-90 2010
This article is inspired by the author's keynote address delivered at the Central New York Reading Council Conference in Syracuse, New York, on February 6, 2010. The author calls for teachers to --"go for broke?"--to give their all--to ensure that the children they serve achieve academic success in their literacy classrooms. By capitalizing on the cultural and linguistic strengths that children bring to school and employing culturally relevant and responsive pedagogies, the author argues that teachers can create classroom spaces that make all children feel they belong and that provide opportunities for students to make strides in language and literacy learning.
