The chapter is grounded on the critical literacies advancement model to frame the understanding of how teachers and faculty can develop certain non-traditional critical literacy skills to reframe their perceptions and advance equity and social justice. The critical literacies of focus in this instance include racial and cultural literacies, which the authors argue can lead to more informed behaviors and actions with the intent of promoting positive social change. By developing racial and critical literacies, the authors discuss how teachers and faculty can navigate their teaching careers in ways that create environments that promote learning and success for of all students.
