Abstract

In a time when literacy holds the key to making sense of self in and of the world, we recognize the power of high-quality texts for teaching, learning, and living. The three teachers featured in this column provide evidence from their practices that choosing and using literature in critical ways invites students to make sense of their worlds. The LLA community values the knowledge and experience of these teacher-authors who invite us into the work they do to challenge students’ minds and hearts through powerful literature study.
