Roundtable

Mini-Lessons to Use to Promote Critical Literacy with Social Justice-Minded Gifted Students

Friday, November 10
3:45 PM - 4:45 PM
Location: Exhibit Hall Roundtable 9

Developing critical literacy allows gifted students, often sensitive to issues of social justice, to examine texts and media with a critical eye. This session provides participants with methods for applying instruction in critical literacy to examine picture books, novels, and digital media. Participants gain an understanding of how mini-lessons can be used in the reading workshop or other settings to sharpen students' critical eye and give them tools for discussing the concepts.
