Reading and Analyzing Ethnographies through Literature Circles: A Praxis Model for Encouraging Multicultural Educators
Coles-Ritchie, Marilee
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v15 n1 2013
This study explores the process of implementing literature circles using ethnographies as the texts to better prepare teachers for multicultural/ multilingual teaching contexts. Data collected by the course instructor and two of the participants, using a Critical Teacher Action Research (CTAR) methodology, indicate that participants think critically, connect to the texts and others, and identify ways to enhance school practice based on the funds of knowledge described in the ethnographic works when participating in literature circles. The author provides the process of implementing literature circles in teacher education courses and provides an action plan for further practice.
