Addressing Religious Diversity through Children's Literature: An "English as a Foreign Language" Classroom in Israel
Hayik, Rawia
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v17 n2 p92-106 2015
Conflicts between different religious groups occasionally arise in my Christian and Muslim Israeli-Arab EFL students' school and area. In an attempt to increase students' knowledge of and respect for other faiths in the region, I conducted practitioner inquiry research in my religiously diverse Middle-Eastern classroom. Grounded in critical literacy, I used a book set of religion-based literature alongside critical literacy engagements to effect some change in students' tolerance towards other faiths. This article describes my journey of exploring students' reader responses to religion-based texts and issues.
