A Practical Guide to Political Action: Grassroots and English Teaching
Burns, Leslie David
English Journal, v96 n4 p56-61 Mar 2007
Leslie David Burns calls teachers to the political forefront, believing that we need to educate our communities about our work by dispelling inaccurate public assumptions about literacy, "best" teaching practices, and accountability standards. He provides teachers with a list of practical steps for "intentional political action" at the grassroots level. (Contains 1 figure.)
