This essay takes place in the United States in 2020, the fall of the presidential elections, a year marked by Black Lives Matter protests, and the rise of white…

McGinley, William; Kamberelis, George; White, John Wesley – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2021
To engage in critical readings of literary texts, in ways that are also ethical and compassionate, requires readers to enter emotionally and imaginatively into the complex, textual worlds of others as they are portrayed in stories.

Shann, Steve; Macken-Horarik, Mary; Edwards, CeCe – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
What do we see when we observe an excellent English lesson? What's going on in the room? Perhaps what stands out is a collaborative making of meanings inspired by stimulating texts. Perhaps what's most important is an ever-deepening knowledge about, and facility with, the many ways that language works. Maybe what we're seeing is a carefully…

"Drawing Conclusions" explores the use of juxtaposed visual representations (JVRs) to help preservice teachers grapple with abstract concepts, theories, or complex controversies in education.
