Pose, Wobble, Flow
A Culturally Proactive Approach to Literacy Instruction
This book proposes a pedagogical model called “Pose, Wobble, Flow” to encapsulate the challenge of teaching and the process of growing as an educator. The authors provide six different culturally proactive teaching stances or “poses” that secondary English teachers can use to meet the needs of all students. They describe how teachers can expect to “wobble” as they adapt instruction to the needs of their students, while also incorporating new insights about their own preconceptions about teaching. Teachers are encouraged to recognise this flexibility as a positive process or “flow” that can be used to address challenges and adopt ambitious teaching strategies like those depicted in this book. Each chapter highlights a particular pose, describes how to work through common wobbles, incorporates teacher voices and provides questions for further discussion. Pose, Wobble, Flow presents a promising framework for disrupting the pervasive myth that there is one set of sure-fire, culturally neutral “best” practices.
