Critical Pedagogy [electronic resource]: Octavia E. Butler and Ruthanne Lum McCunn

Loading...
In Part I, Cathie Wright-Lewis' students at Benjamin Banneker Academy in Brooklyn, New York, investigate the political, social, technological, and environmental issues in Octavia E. Butler's novel, "Parable of the Sower". In Part II, Sandra Childs' students at Franklin High School in Portland, Oregon, discuss cultural and political issues as they relate to Ruthanne Lum McCunn's novel, "Thousand Pieces of Gold". Lum McCunn reads from her novel and discusses it with students. The lessons demonstrate the "critical pedagogy" approach to teaching literature, where students are encouraged to respond to texts as politically aware members of a community.
