Moving Forward with Exceptional Literacy Research and Practice amidst Educational Policy Changes
Majors, Yolanda; Lewis, Cynthia; Tierney, Robert J.; Beach, Richard
Journal of Literacy Research, v49 n2 p302-313 Jun 2017
In this Insights column, four authors address the question: Given current and potential shifts in education policy, what should literacy educators keep in mind to move forward with exceptional literacy research and practices? Majors and Lewis urge white scholars to reach out to scholars of color in learning how to generate counter-arguments that speak back to alternative facts. Tierney encourages the field to learn from scholars who are engaged in community based participatory research and activism, especially those who are engaged as allies with groups of people who are indigenous, marginalized, transnational, and cross-cultural. Beach calls on the field to consider research that examines implementation of the Common Core State Standards, such as argumentative writing and translanguaging.
