"Twilight or Middlemarch?" A Teacher's Refusal to Choose
Singh, Sandhya P.
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v22 n1 p3-13 2015
What should children and young adolescents read? Recent changes in the English curriculum have once again shifted the focus towards more canonical texts, but does featuring such texts on the course necessarily equate to rigorous teaching and in-depth learning? Through a self-examination of her own reading history, the author argues for a dialogic approach to reading and text selection instead, so that students may negotiate better understandings of themselves and their own socio-cultural contexts.
