Teacher professional development and classroom resources across the curriculum
This activity is designed to provide an opportunity to interpret two poems using the four pedagogical approaches covered in this workshop series: reader response, inquiry, cultural studies, and critical pedagogy.
To begin, choose one of the poems below. After reading it, answer the questions that follow.
The questions are prompts to begin understanding any work of multicultural literature through the lens of each pedagogical approach. You may use them to guide personal reflection as you read, to launch a lesson with students, or to begin a dialogue with colleagues. Join an online discussion that uses these questions to explore two poems by Marilyn Chin and Luci Tapahonso.
