Socially Inclusive Pedagogy in Literacy Classes: Fostering Inclusion in the Inner City
Cleovoulou, Yiola
Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, v4 p23-34 2008
Drawing on case studies of five elementary school teachers in one inner city school, the author explored ways teachers foster social inclusion in their classrooms. Rooted in classroom observations and extensive teacher interviews, teachers' teaching methods and practices were examined as a base from which to explore socially inclusive pedagogy in literacy curriculum. The analysis suggests that: drawing on personal connections, teaching historical fiction and being culturally responsive, and letter writing foster social inclusion within literacy classes.
