I don't think she'd mind me forwarding her email to you all. Morgan Duncan, one of our second year students, came across another format for critical pedagogical activities. Please see below -- could be used with many different types of groups, I think.  Thanks, Morgan!

And others, don't be shy in sending relevant information to others through using our listserv, because you all are doing various things and come across different ideas and resources.

Thanks!  --Jaylynne

Hi Jaylynne,

In preparing for my Reading seminar paper, I came across a particularly Cultural Studies-esque method of teaching that I think you might like. From what I've read, Reciprocal Teaching (Palincsar and Brown) allows teachers and students to switch roles throughout the lesson, where they read and evaluate together. It's based on dialogue around a written text,with the idea of fostering higher thinking processes for students. Teachers support the students by learning aloud together as they develop those skills. Even though they're using it for reading, this could probably be adapted well for reasoning through and evaluating texts with students who are developing critical awareness. Just a thought :)

Have a great weekend!
