Thereâ€™s a growing body of publications on critical literacy but in my mind none of these truly capture the nuances of real life the way that stories told face to face might. And because I canâ€™t take you with me as I have these face to face conversations I figure this podcast is the next best thing. This really is one of the main reasons for this broadcast. That is to offer you opportunities to hear first hand about critical literacy in different spaces and places from folks who are exploring possibilities for framing their work from this perspective. And I hope that you will contribute your thinking, reflections and musings regarding critical literacy.
Let me make clear that this broadcast is not meant to represent some sort of academic authority. This broadcast instead is meant to create space for you to think about possibilities for critical literacy in your setting or to think about critical literacy in general. What you will hear are narratives from real life and eventually I may even include some images.
