¿Qué voces escuchas? Aproximación a la lectura de cuentos a través de los ojos de los héroes silenciosos (What voices do you hear? An inclusive approach to read books through the eyes of the Unsung Heroes)

Description:

La lectura de cuentos tiende a enfocarse en los personajes principales e ignorar a los personajes secundarios. Sin las voces de éstos la lectura se vuelve egocéntrica y unívoca. En este artículo proponemos un modelo de lectura periférica e inclusiva en la que maestros y estudiantes escuchan y analizan las voces de los héroes silenciosos. El objetivo de este método es mostrar a los niños que leer cuentos con ojos inclusivos es el primer paso para convertirse en representantes de la pluralidad… Read more

In this article, the authors argue… Read more

What's powerful about this is Ms. Berlin's willingness to share how she confronted her own biases as a new teacher and realizes that "my locus of control turned out to be much larger than I thought" (at about 1:18:00). There are many ways to use… Read more
