It is such a treat to write about education and I thoroughly enjoyed researching and writing this post on Critical Literacy for Bedrock Learning.
We definitely need to teach our young people to be critically literate, to be able to evaluate what they read and work out the ways that they are being manipulated as readers. At the same time, I wonder if I need to work on my own critical literacy. I’m interested in politics and current affairs, but I also have a tendency to express ideas picked up from memes on Instagram as absolute fact. Must try harder.
