Description & Coverage
Description:

Literacy and popular culture are intrinsically linked as forms of communication, entertainment, and education. Students are motivated to engage with popular culture through a myriad of mediums for a variety of purposes. Utilizing popular culture to bridge literacy concepts across content areas in K-12 settings offers a level playing field across student groups and grade levels. As concepts around traditional literacy education evolve and become more culturally responsive, the connections between popular culture and disciplinary literacy must be explored.

Disciplinary Literacy Connections to Popular Culture in K-12 Settings is an essential publication that explores a conceptual framework around pedagogical connections to popular culture. While highlighting a broad range of topics including academic creativity, interdisciplinary storytelling, and skill development, this book is ideally designed for educators, curriculum developers, instructional designers, administrative officials, policymakers, researchers, academicians, and students.

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Academic Creativity

  • Consumerism

Reviews and Testimonials

This publication is highly recommended as a resource to continue to assist all educational stakeholders to understand the dynamics, influences, and reciprocal connection between popular culture and literacy. To many the relationship between popular culture and disciplinary literacy may appear to be unrelated, especially in the context of academic settings, but educators must realize K-12 students are constantly surrounded by and utilize popular culture examples. These popular culture instances are often culturally relevant, occur out-of-school, are significant in student lives, and bring meaning and literacy learning. To recognize and use these in classroom settings is to embrace relevant student knowledge and experiences with academic literacy demands all to enhance the literacy skills of students.

– Prof. Larkin Page, Xavier University of Louisiana, USA
