Areas of Expertise

Culturally Relevant Pedagogy
Instructional and methodological approaches for teachers and school leaders to improve student performance. What is culturally relevant pedagogy? How does it support student learning beyond lesson planning? How can teachers develop praxis and classroom community that transform student engagement, motivation, and academic excellence?

Racial Literacy
Theory to practice awareness of race and how it organizes and influences school community and classroom instructional practices, use of materials, and critical thinking. Teachers and students develop essential thinking tools to support reading complex historical and contemporary texts and their relationship to everyday life.  

Racial Literacy Assessment
A research-based comprehensive survey used to measure organizations' racial literacy, examining belief systems and comfort.  

Language and Literacies
Students' languages, both academic and cultural, are assets to learning and the exploration of literacies. Teachers can learn the interrelated relationship between language and literacies and their influences on accessing academic achievement. 

Content Area Literacies
Each academic disciplinary area is rooted in language practices with unique vocabularies and ways to process content. Teacher training focuses on how to read and write across the content areas.  

Family, School, and Community Building
Evaluating and constructing organizational collaborations with families and community to develop student and family connectedness to education and learning.

Teacher Reflective Practices
