"Socializing Democracy": The Community Literacy Pedagogy of Jane Addams
Wendler, Rachael
Community Literacy Journal, v8 n2 p33-48 Spr 2014
This article reclaims Jane Addams as a community literacy pedagogue and explicates her pedagogical theory through an analysis of her social thought. Addams' goal of "socializing democracy" through education led her to both encourage immigrant students to associate across difference and to assimilate into dominant literacies--tensions present in today's community literacy contexts. The article includes suggestions for rhetorically redeploying Addams' pedagogy in contemporary writing instruction.
