Engendering Gender Equity: Using Literature to Teach and Learn Democracy
Kraver, Jeraldine R.
English Journal, v96 n6 p67-73 Jul 2007
The question of how "teachers and students [can] connect their learning to the broader society" drives Jeraldine R. Kraver's search for ways to use critical pedagogy in secondary school and university classrooms. Focusing on the topic of gender equity, she shows how teachers can use literature to create critical classrooms. In addition, she offers sample assignments and discussion prompts related to classic and contemporary literature. (Contains 4 notes.)
