Get Free: Antibias Literacy Instruction for Stronger Readers, Writers, and Thinkers

Corwin. (Corwin Literacy). Oct. 2023. 336p. pap. $35.95. ISBN 9781071918364.
A book that invites novice and experienced educators on a journey of discovery and introspection. Research and years of classroom experience shine as Ebarvia details countless strategies for literacy instruction, such as nontraditional identity inventory, text sets using multiple pieces of literature, and whole group and shared literature study formats using before, during, and after instruction tools. Each chapter begins with artwork inspired by the author’s Filipino culture; these patterns and imagery reflect the central theme of the chapters. Familiar teaching methods are presented with twists that enable perfectly scaffolded student learning formats and structures through analytical data, bias checkups, and canonized curriculum measures. Ebarvia boldly declares that readers’ knowledge and experiences do not exist apart from the text they are studying and must be included for true learning. Each chapter builds teacher knowledge and craft, subsequently establishing superior learning environments for students chapter after chapter. Ebarvia concludes by sharing her “love” and “grief” stories to encourage educators to teach with love, even when grief seems unbearable.
VERDICT This helpful book reengineers classroom literacy learning by encouraging teachers to facilitate while students command their own learning.
