"I Thought We Were over This Problem": Explorations of Race in/through Literature Inquiry
Price-Dennis, Detra; Holmes, Kathlene; Smith, Emily E.
Equity & Excellence in Education, v49 n3 p314-335 2016
This article examines classroom practices that draw upon students' understandings of race and equity as they engage in critical literature inquiry to explore issues of power in our society. Our research team, comprising a fifth-grade classroom teacher, a doctoral candidate, and a university professor, analyzed students' written and digital projects to better understand what new skills, strategies, and meaning-making opportunities emerge when race is centralized in the curriculum. We documented the various ways students were able to voice their thoughts through multimodal learning in an elementary language arts classroom.
