Abstract

This paper presents a partial finding of an ongoing study. The purpose is to bring forward reasons for changing education paradigm into postmodernism and to encourage embracement of CL into EFL classroom. It pinpoints three foci. It begins by putting forward the reasons for switching to different (if not new) paradigm of education: the postmodern education. Then, it discusses reasons for implementing critical literacy (CL) that is based on postmodernism, and finally, it showcases possible infusion of CL into conventional EFL classrooms. In this particular study, infusion of CL into conventional Reading class is viewed as a ‘compromise’ in the effort to minimize resistance to CL as a full course or as part of mainstream curriculum. As observed, the teaching of EFL particularly in Indonesia, still largely sits on conventional literacy, adopts blanket curriculum, and is still relatively immune to CL. However, considering its importance, the least that be done is to incorporate CL into existing program. The incorporation involves the use of Luke and Freebody’s (1990, 1999) four resources framework (FRF), SQ3R reading strategy and its modification, cooperative learning, and mindful material and questions selection.
