Diverging from Traditional Paths: Reconstructing Fairy Tales in the EFL Classroom
Hayik, Rawia
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v9 n4 p221-236 2015
Framed by transactional and critical literacy theories, this teacher-research introduces practical examples of implementing antisexist pedagogy in an EFL Middle Eastern classroom. After a short preview of the gender-biased educational messages abundant in literature and pop culture, the article focuses on students' transaction with "Cinder Edna," an emancipatory picture book that provides students with an alternative way of being and acting. A content analysis of sample reader responses reveals how adolescent female Arab students start to challenge the status quo and take action for changing their gender-biased reality.
