#170 Does the Literary Canon Normalize Whiteness? with Jacqueline Stallworth (pt.1)

Hello everyone! Welcome to part one of the season finale of Teach Me, Teacher SEASON FOUR! What!? My mind is blown. But not more blown than during my talk with the amazing Jacqueline Stallworth!

I first met Jacqueline at an AP training at Texas Christian University, and was blown away by her clear and compassionateImagemessage about the literary canon and why we should consider re-examining it again. It took awhile for our schedules to sync up to get her on the podcast, but we finally did it for the season finale!

In this episode we discuss:

  1. The purpose of the literary canon 
  2. Student choice in what they read
  3. Personal literary canons
  4. And asks if the literary canon normalizes whiteness

…and much much more.

This episode will challenge you to think critically about the bastions of English, and I hope invite you to be a part of even more talks that improve our craft and purpose in the classroom.


HeinemannThis episode is sponsored by Heinemann—the leading publisher of professional books and resources for educators—and by their Reading Strategies Book by Jennifer Serravallo.

I hear about this book all the time from teachers because it’s so accessible and so respectful of teacher’s time.

Each page is a different strategy to share directly with a student—little nudges to make whatever skill they’re working become automatic.

Jen Serravallo really knows what teachers need. Each strategy includes teaching language, prompts, and visuals you can also The Reading Strategies Book - Serravalloshare with kids.

There’s 300 strategies total, and they’re all organized by important reading goals like comprehension, vocabulary, writing about reading, and more.

You’ll find something here to help every reader in your classroom grow.

If you don’t have The Reading Strategies Book, head on over to Heinemann.com to read a sample chapter and find out what you’re missing or order yourself a copy.
