How will you help them see that stories typically only provide a partial account of what happened?

Introduction to the Assignment
For this assignment, you will write a critical literacy lesson. Have students consider the perspectives of central but silenced characters in a picture book. Have them look at the text from multiple characters’ points of view and critically reflect on their thoughts and feelings. What questions will you ask to help students gain a deeper understanding of the book? How will you help them see that stories typically only provide a partial account of what happened?
“Critical literacy involves challenging a text by considering problem-posing questions such as: What’s missing from this account? How could it be told differently? Comber (2001) explains: “Critical literacy is not a set of finite practices.” She asserts that teachers “have to assist young people in assembling a set of discursive tactics and strategies” (p. 2). The NCTE Position Statement on Reading (1999) states: “As readers, we talk to others about what we are reading. These interactions expand and strengthen our comprehension and interpretation. In these interactions, we learn to read critically, to question what we read, and to respond in a certain way.” Further, through problem-posing questions, students learn to “uncover underlying assumptions and motives that otherwise operate invisibly.” This minilesson describes one practical way to introduce young people to discursive tactics and strategies that will expand and strengthen their comprehension and interpretation of texts.”
