Reading for Democracy: Preparing Middle-Grades Social Studies Teachers to Teach Critical Literacy
Reidel, Michelle; Draper, Christine A.
Social Studies, v102 n3 p124-131 2011
The role of literacy instruction--and more specifically the ability to read critically--in democratic and Social Studies education has not been fully or explicitly explored. This gap is also strikingly evident in the reluctance of many Social Studies teachers to incorporate reading instruction into their practice. In this paper we describe our efforts to engage preservice middle grades Social Studies teachers in critical literacy practices as a first step toward more effectively and meaningfully integrating reading instruction into Social Studies education.
