“Critical literacy is not a teaching method but a way of thinking in a way that challenges texts and life as we know it. Critical literacy focuses on issues of power and promotes reflection, transformation, and action. It encourages readers to be active participants in the reading process: to question, to dispute, and to examine power relations (Freire, 1970).” —MAUREEN McLAUGHLIN
