What are the effects of the information explosion on children's hearts, minds, and behaviors? Where do we learn-and how do we learn-the values necessary to live in our world? The exploration of values, contend editors Patricia Ruggiano Schmidt and Ann Watts Pailliotet, is a process that should not be left to chance. The contributors to this book-literacy teachers, teacher educators, and authors of literature for children and young adults-believe there is a need to bring the explicit study of values into classrooms to help young people function more effectively in their communities and beyond. Exploring Values Through Literature, Multimedia, and Literacy Events: Making Connections highlights the important links among home, school, and global society that will help students understand one another and contribute to a cohesive community. The authors describe the work of educators and children, and the materials and strategies they use to explore values such as compassion, caring, sharing, respect, and appreciation of cultural differences. Some of the chapter topics include * multicultural literature and family stories * critical media literacy and values * technology and values * schoolwide approaches for teaching values through literature and multimedia.The authors contend that literature, multimedia, and literacy events can be used to promote not only the language arts, but also student choice, cooperative learning, and critical thinking. For those who already explore values in the classroom, this book provides affirmation and many useful ideas. For those who want to learn more about how to explore values in the classroom, it offers activities to use right away. Patricia Ruggiano Schmidt is an associate professor of literacy and elementary education at Le Moyne College, Syracuse, New York, USA. Ann Watts Pailliotet is an associate professor of education at Whitman College, Walla Walla, Washington, USA.

How can Canadian educators begin to instill cultural sensitivity and social awareness in elementary and secondary school students? This vital text attempts to answer that question by bringing together literacy scholars and practicing teachers in a unique cross-Canadian exploration of children’s literature and social justice. Through reflection on the experience of teaching with various Canadian texts including picture books, novels, and graphic novels, the contributors behind Challenging Stories create a “pedagogy of discomfort” that will encourage both educators and their students to develop critical literacy skills. The compelling contributions to this collection highlight the complexities of teaching with texts that address issues of discrimination, historical marginalization, colonialism, racial and gender intolerance, sexual orientation, language, and cultural diversity. The authors offer first-hand insight into the possibilities and challenges of implementing curricular and pedagogical changes to promote equity and social justice in the classroom. Featuring the stories of participating teachers and an annotated bibliography of children’s literature, this invaluable resource will prove to be essential reading for current and future educators.
