Social Class and Children’s Literature

Kudos to Stephanie Jones (who blogs at Engaged Intellectuals) for her excellent article Grass Houses: Representations and Reinventions of Social Class Through Children’s Literature,  just published in The Journal of Language and Literacy Learning.   I had the privilege of reading this piece (no, not as a reviewer …)  awhile ago and have been waiting for it to come out so that I could teach it.

And there is yet another article on social class and literature in this issue.  At last, at last, scholarly work about teaching about social class in classrooms.

I’m off to revise my syllabi!
