What is critical literacy anyway? Join us for this second session of the Culturally Relevant Teaching in Early Childhood Classrooms series where we will explore what critical literacy looks like in a K-2 classroom setting. In this session, members of the 2015-2017 cohort of the Professional Dyads of Culturally Relevant Teaching will share what they are learning from their own research and inquiry as they support children in the culturally meaningful and engaging practice of uncovering and critically discussing underlying messages within texts.
