Demonstrating the power and potential of educators working together
to use literacy practices that make changes in people's lives, this
collaboratively written book blends the voices of participants in a
teacher-led professional development group to provide a truly
lifespan perspective on designing critical literacy practices. It
joins these educators' stories with the history and practices of
the group - K-12 classroom teachers, adult educators, university
professors, and community activists who have worked together since
2001 to better understand the relationship between literacy and
social justice. Exploring issues such as gender equity, linguistic
diversity, civil rights and freedom and war, the book showcases
teachers' reflective practice in action and offers insight into the
possibilities and struggles of teaching literacy through a
framework of social justice. Designing Socially Just Learning
Communities models an innovative form of professional development
for educators and researchers who are seeking ways to transform
educational practices.The teachers' practices and actions -- in
their classrooms and as members of the teacher research group --
will speak loudly to policy-makers, researchers, and activists who
wish to work alongside them.
