ABSTRACT
This article examines articles published between 1999 and 2003 that provide classroom applications of critical literacy instruction for adolescent learners, so that teachers and teacher educators who support the theory of critical literacy and its democratizing values may benefit from the experience of others who have already begun the crossing from theory to practice. Classroom literacy practices that involve students in reading supplementary texts, reading multiple texts, reading from a resistant perspective, and producing countertexts all help develop an understanding that text is given meaning.
