Week 10 – March 21
Lecture: Curriculum as literacy (Katia)

Please read Chapter 7 (Examples from English Literature) from Kumashiro’s Against Common Sense. You can access the book at this link (You’ll need to sign in with your uregina username and password) and then read pages 61-68. As you read, pay attention to what Kumashiro says about the way our lenses shape the way we read the world, and consider what lenses you might have.

Reading response (due before seminar):

You may begin your blog prompt before lecture, but you’ll need to answer part B after lecture.

Respond to the following:
A. How has your upbringing/schooling shaped how you you “read the world?” What biases and lenses do you bring to the classroom? How might we unlearn / work against these biases?
B. Which “single stories” were present in your own schooling? Whose truth mattered?
