What are some critical literacy strategies for elementary classrooms?
In the coming school year, I am looking to bring critical literacy focus in to my classroom. After a recent experience with "The Lies My Teacher Told Me", I do not want my students to have an experience, 10-15 years down the road when they look back at their elementary experience and are outraged that they weren't told the entire story long ago. With that being said, in our very standardized environment, how can I ensure that I am meeting all of the standards but also doing justice by my students?
