Think Aloud in Groups: Mediating Poetry for Children with Cecília Meireles, Paulo Freire, and John Dewey
Diniz, Telma Franco
Education 3-13, v46 n4 p469-481 2018
As suggested by its title, this article reports on a Think Aloud in Group (TAG) practice in which a group of Y5 children thought aloud the poem "The Blue Boy", written in Portuguese by Cecília Meireles and translated into English by Sarah Rebecca Kersley. As a dialogical and collaborative literacy practice, TAG aims to transform the teaching--learning model by favouring a reader-centred approach and by welcoming the multiple interpretations derived from readers' subjectivity. This article also reports on the ideas that ground TAG practices, linking the poet and educator Cecília Meireles to educators John Dewey, Anísio Teixeira, and Paulo Freire, all of them champions of a liberating education.
