The Power of Teacher Inquiry: Developing a Critical Literacy "for Teachers"
Wilhelm, Jeffrey D., Ed.
Voices from the Middle, v17 n2 p36-39 Dec 2009
While developing critical literacy in our students is a priority for all of us, Wilhelm believes that we must develop a critical literacy of teaching, as well. He asserts that this can best be achieved by 1) teaching through an inquiry context, and 2) taking on a teacher-researcher stance to think both reflectively and reflexively about our teaching. In other words, we must always learn from our students how best to teach them.
