ELA: We're Not Limited Anymore

teachinglitcontext

In Teaching Literature In The Context Of Literacy Instruction, coauthors Jocelyn Chadwick and John Grassie address complex questions secondary English teachers wrangle with daily. In today's post, they discuss the idea that we’re no longer limited to “teaching canon” in literacy instruction. They say anthologies now reflect diversity of various writers and student choices (and voices) are now reflected.
