Description

A provocative collection of articles that begins with the idea that the "popular" in classrooms and in the everyday lives of teachers and students is fundamentally political. This anthology includes articles by elementary and secondardy public school teachers, scholars and activists who examine how and what popular toys, books, films, music and other media "teach." The essays offer strong critiques and practical pedagogical strategies for educators at every level to engage with the popular.

Review quote

"This superb collection is based on the ... belief that popular culture matters, that it is a place where young people's identities are both expressed and shaped by forces beyond their control. The essays collected here will provide teachers and educators with an invaluable resource to think creatively about their own pedagogical activities." -- Sut Jhally "Professor of Communication, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Founder and Director of the Media Education Foundation"
