Abstract

Our research explores Peter Johnston’s “Dynamic Learning Framework,” a paradigm teachers promote through their words to encourage self–efficacy and social imagination. A collaboration between a Lesley alumna and two Lesley professors, our case study details a local kindergarten teacher’s application of Johnston’s framework through children’s literature choices and discussions surrounding children’s literature. Our interactive presentation will seek audience input on further social justice applications of our findings in other classroom settings.
