This eight-part video workshop introduces middle school teachers to ethnically diverse American writers and offers dynamic instructional strategies and resources to make their works meaningful for students. Teachers model effective approaches-based on reader response, critical inquiry, cultural studies, and critical pedagogy-for using multicultural works in the classroom and, in units that unfold over time, demonstrate activities and practices that engage students in critical discussions of race, class, and social justice. The featured authorsalso share information on their works and about their lives in interviews and classroom visits.
