Promise into Practice: What It Now Means to Teach Adolescent Readers


It is a daunting and exciting time to teach English – especially as we consider the “shifts” in how we define literacy, and the toolset for our work as readers and writers continually expands. This session investigates one teacher’s work in studying her practice and students’ learning when she worked to bridge new literacies into “traditional” classroom practice.



Sara Kajder, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of English education where she coordinates the English Education program and serves as a literacy affiliated faculty member. Her research examines the nature of teaching English in standards based contexts, the integration of new literacies and emerging technologies to support teaching and learning, and the nature and development of adolescents’ literacy identities.
