Research Interests

My research interests include teacher education, culturally responsive pedagogy, critical literacy, and issues centered on struggling readers.


  • CURR 635: Action Res in Reading&Literacy

    This course is designed to help students synthesize information learned from other reading/literacy course work, generalize about issues in reading, critically analyze information heard and read, make judgments about the efficacy of policies and procedures in reading, and initiate change in reading instruction. The course is centered around the implementation and reporting of a significant action research project.

  • INTD 203: Social Foundation of US Educ

    This course focuses on the many kinds of diversity (ethnic and cultural, socio-economic, racial, religious, linguistic, gender and sexual orientation) to be addressed by schools in America. Students examine significant social and cultural challenges emerging in our country, legal and judicial issues, both at the national and state level, the economics and politics of schooling, the history and philosophy of education, and the historical evolution of curriculum and instruction in American schools.
