Given the current educational climate of high stakes testing, standardized curriculum, and "approved" reading lists, incorporating unauthorized, often controversial, popular literature into the classroom becomes a political choice. The authors examine why teachers choose to read Harry Potter, how they use the books and incorporate new media, and the resulting teacher-student interactions. The book encourages a critical discussion regarding the state of our educational system and the increasing lack of space allowed for imagination and complexity. Its unique research methodology is part ethnographic, part practitioner research, and serves as an analytical commentary on current school culture and policy

"Teaching Harry Potter illuminates the experiences of three diverse teachers as they read the Potter novels in multicultural classrooms, pushing back against shrinking opportunities for literacy and imagination in urban schools. Utilizing a combination of ethnography, practitioner research, and critical analysis, the book provides an analytical commentary on school culture and policy, focusing on a sector that has been largely ignored in current debates about schooling--the role of teachers. Richly textured classroom narratives are complimented by analysis of the current state of the teaching profession and the potential of popular media and technology to support imagination and innovation in education"-- Provided by publisher
