Urban Poetics: Poetry, Social Justice and Critical Pedagogy in Education
Stovall, David
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v38 n1 p63-80 Mar 2006
Posing an alternate view to high stakes educational models, the thoughts, opinions and practices of four poetry educators are used to provide critical insights as how to infuse creative outlets in the educational process. In gathering the motivations of these poetry educators, a goal of this project is to encapsulate their philosophies through researcher observation and participation. Engaging such work with social justice at the center creates a particular disposition. It can be subjective in the sense that an understanding of improvement requires an explicit commitment to the improvement of the lives of young people in education through a participatory process.
