Description

Accessible and engaging, this textbook provides a roadmap for disrupting reading in the classroom and provides clear demonstrations of how to do it. The idea of disrupting reading evolves from critical pedagogy; it requires readers to disrupt their existing beliefs and consider other perspectives. Addressing socio-political issues, privilege, and social justice topics, this book presents a clear theoretical framework, methods, and easy applications for practice. Offering pedagogical features, classroom examples, teacher vignettes, and connections to literature, this textbook is ideal for preservice teachers in elementary and middle school education, literacy and English Language Arts.
