About the Author

Ken Winograd is Associate Professor, College of Education, Oregon State University, USA.


"'Defying Piaget's cognitive theory position that younger learners are unable to think abstractly in the lower stages of development, the critical literacy researchers Winograd (Oregon State Univ.) assembled present actual classroom practices designed to bring critical thinking skills to curricular practice while meeting the Common Core Standards requirements ...Overall, Winograd and his associates articulate ways to teach meaningfully and effectively through the standardization of the Common Core. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals and practitioners."- D. D. Bouchard, Crown College, for CHOICE, August 2015

"Finally, a book for early childhood educators that demonstrates the wide variety of approaches to living-out critical literacy with young children-that there is not 'one' right way to do it -and situates the numerous classroom examples in a larger discussion of the current socio-political educational climate, which emphasizes testing and 'basic literacy skills.'"- Candace R. Kuby, University of Missouri, USA "This volume of seminal and new work in critical literacy gives readers a view of where the field has been and contains exciting new research and voices showing us where critical literacy in early childhood is headed."-Tasha Tropp Laman, University of South Carolina, USA
