The use of children's books as a vehicle for ideological transmission by Chad Curtis Schneider( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The teachers conveyed strong opinions on what they would and would not discuss in their reading groups as it related to racism and African Americans, heterosexism and sexual orientation, and environmentalism. While the majority of the teachers recognized the relevance of discussing racism and African Americans in literature circles, they dismissed the relevance of discourse related to heterosexism and sexual orientation. The teachers unanimously supported the discussion of environmentalism with their students. The findings were consistent regardless of the teachers' stated political alignments. Classroom teachers hold positions of power and greatly influence the opinions and values of their students. The types of literature used can mold their students' ideological frameworks. The absence of certain pieces of literature can also exclude ideological elements and points of view that are meaningful to a liberal and multicultural education, which is the philosophical foundation of a modern education in the United States. The findings support the argument that certain children's books will continue to be ideological transmitters in the American public school system
