Teaching at the Crossroads

Cultures and Critical Perspectives in Literature by Women of Color

 

By Laurie Grobman

 

Teaching at the Crossroads presents an innovative model for teaching multicultural women’s literature. Combining theory and practice, Grobman presents a much-needed guide for teachers who want to introduce their students to multiple literary traditions. The model presented here encourages teachers approach texts by women of color from multiple perspectives, connecting them to a range of cultural, social, political, and geographical contexts.

 

Perhaps most significantly, this strategy is designed to place texts by women of color at the center of the curriculum not only in classes specifically designated “ethnic” or “women’s” literature, but in all English classes, in both high school and university settings. Highly accessible and designed for practical use, Teaching at the Crossroads includes sample class plans and discussion questions.

 

 

The author has done us a great service in sharing her carefully thought-through pedagogy in the spirit of promoting responsible and responsive education.
