Fang, Zhihui; Fu, Danling; Lamme, Linda L.
New Advocate, v12 n3 p259-76 Sum 1999
Uses a cultural studies framework to demonstrate how multicultural literature is often trivialized and misused in literature-based classrooms. Critiques actual literature discussions and examines the content of several Asian American children's books to move toward a more complete understanding of critical literacy pedagogy and what it means to "read" in a pluralistic society.
