Learning Language and Critical Literacy: Adolescent ESL Students.
Alford, Jennifer
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v45 n3 p238-42 Nov 2001
Addresses two interrelated factors needed to be resolved at the commencement of any Critical Literacy approach in the mainstream subject classroom--the nature of the texts presented and the concept of resistance. Lists three strategies that help to build background knowledge: activating existing prior knowledge; building on that knowledge from a contemporary localized perspective; and adding new information during reading.
