Multicultural Text Sets, Civic Responsibility, & Social Justice Using Jacqueline Woodson’s books as anchor texts, we developed text sets around elements of social justice. Cappiello & Dawes (2012) –“the power of children’s literature to engage students [and] inspire deep content exploration” through the use of multimodal, multigenre text sets – “texts that vary in modality” including visual, audio, and digital texts – as “a versatile teaching tool for the classroom.” Picower (2012) – Provides a framework for six elements of social justice While not necessary to incorporate all six elements in every unit of study, the elements "build upon each other sequentially, and all should be addressed throughout the year.” By addressing all six elements in the classroom, "students develop an analysis of oppression and tools to take action.“
