    • Critical Literacy: Front & Center
      “Truth no longer exists, what
      matters these days….is what
      stories you spin.”
      Colin Lankshear
    • “We have to beware of
      Orwellian speech –
      Bush’s Clean Air Act
      Is a license to pollute.
      His Healthy Forest
      Initiative is a license to
      Log national forests.”
      “Frames trump facts.”
      George Lakoff
    • “The screen is overtaking the page
      In terms of the major vehicle of
      Gunter Kress
    • “Kids are learning more
      about what it means to be
      literate outside of school
      than in school.”
      -- James Paul Gee
    • Marjorie Siegel
      “Curricula, despite all of our multimodal understandings, are
      still way to verbocentric.”
    • “In today’s environment if you don’t
      have critical literacy you are a sucker,
      you are going to end up in debt, you
      are going to end up on the streets, you
      are going to sign up with the first bank
      that offers you a crummy mortgage, you
      are going to wind up with a big Visa card
      debt, you are going to buy everything
      that is pushed your way.”
      Alan Luke
    • Barbara Comber’s definition of ‘Critical Thinking’
      “…the use of language in powerful ways to get things done in the world, to enhance everyday life in schools and communities, and to question practices of privilege and injustice.”
    • “By analyzing visual information and
      teaching students to do the same, we
      provide them with needed tools to
      interrogate the very lifestyles they are
      being sold and to questions those bills
      of goods.”
    • “The goal of critical literacy is tocreate students who are agentsof text
      rather than victims of text.”
    • “Texts have designs on you.”
      Hilary Janks
    • “Inscribed Goats” Watercolor collage 12” x 16” 2010
    • Critical Literacy: Think Social Practices
    • “Everyday texts need to be a
      regular part of the English
      language Arts classroom,
      not just for adolescents, but
      for children from preschool on.”
      Vivian Vasquez
    • “There are multiple literacies.
      What is important is what
      social practices are in place as
      that determines which literacies
      we value and which literacies we
      don’t really value much.”
      --Brian Street
    • “I see curriculum as a metaphor
      for the lives you wish to live
      and the people you want to be.”
      “Live on a daily basis the
      curriculum you are advocating.”
