Gloria Park (English Department) and co-editors Sarah Bogdan, Madeleine Rosa, and Joseph Navarro are proud to announce their upcoming publication, Critical Pedagogy In the Language and Writing Classroom: Strategies, Examples, Activities from Teacher Scholars.

With chapters written by emerging teacher-scholars, this edited book is for in-service and pre-service instructors in language and composition fields. Each chapter draws from Freirean critical pedagogy and is followed by practical classroom activities and applications.

From the publisher's website:

This volume introduces theory-to-practice-based critical pedagogy grounded in Paulo Freire’s scholarship to language and literacy learning settings. The chapters present authentic experiences of teacher-scholars, feature real-world examples and activities ready for implementation in the classroom, and provide nuanced guidance for future teachers. The examples and activities from teacher-scholars place critical pedagogy at the heart of classroom contexts and cover key topics, including place-based pedagogy, contemplative pedagogy, technology within the classroom, and translingual and multimodal paradigms. The chapters include further readings and discussion questions that challenge assumptions and promote deeper reflection, and can be modified for different teaching contexts. This practical volume is essential reading for students and scholars in TESOL and critical pedagogy.
