Critical Literacy for School Improvement: An Action Research Project
Cooper, Karyn; White, Robert E.
Improving Schools, v11 n2 p101-113 2008
This article provides an overview of the integrative process of initiating an action research project on literacy for students "at risk" in a Canadian urban elementary school. As the article demonstrates, this requires development of a school-wide framework, which informs the action research project and desired outcomes, and a shared ownership of this vision by school community and staff. Preliminary understandings provide information and considerations that serve to inform discussions about school/curriculum reform and related concerns about Critical Literacy.
