We’ve spent the last week looking at point of view and specifically how to look at text with a critical eye. Remember what I said, “You can’t truly understand a text, until you realize what’s missing from it first“!
Now I want you to apply these new found skills on the following article. Click on the link below to go to the article on year round schooling.
As you read the article, use the questions of critical literacy provided. Think about who the intended audience is, whose voice you hear as well as whose voice you don’t hear. What’s the purpose of the text? And lastly, what isn’t this article telling us?
I’m looking for a 2-3 paragraph response to the article using your new critical literacy eye!
