Sometimes the "expected" or "normal" path is not best, especially in terms of traditional schooling and the pervasive influence of popular culture. In this new book, Cynthia A. McDaniel demonstrates some ways that adopting a stance of critical literacy can infuse hope and possibility into all aspects of our lives. Interweaving her own experiences to effectively illustrate concepts of research, theory, and practice, McDaniel emphasizes the ways in which critical literacy cannot be considered a lesson plan or a packaged program, but a way of thinking and a way of life. Accessible and engaging, Critical Literacy will be valuable to students, teachers, and parents.
