Abstract

This chapter looks at ways that we need to engage in dialogue about difference with our students to make a difference. In our contemporary world literacy cannot be limited to learning to read words, but it must connect to the world and our everyday lived experiences. Using Freirean pedagogy as a guide we can start to think about what a system of education that teaches literacy to include difference that makes a difference looks like. This is not meant to be what Freire critiques as a “how-to recipe” for teaching literacy (Literacy, p. 134), but it is meant as an example of a fluid approach that others can then re-create and rewrite for use in their own context.
