Writing That Values Multiple Ways Of Knowing: Supporting Early Career Teachers’ Efforts To Promote Literacy Development, Lauren A. May, Heather Wright 2021 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Writing That Values Multiple Ways Of Knowing: Supporting Early Career Teachers’ Efforts To Promote Literacy Development, Lauren A. May, Heather Wright

Virginia English Journal

Early career secondary English teachers manage challenges that complicate their efforts to support students’ literacy development, including feelings of inadequacy as teachers. This paper focuses on low-stakes writing strategies that teachers might use to promote literacy development in the classroom and decrease their feelings of inadequacy. The authors, Lauren and Heather, use the lenses of dialogic pedagogy and the reflective turn to draw upon literature on the blending of reading and writing instruction and elements of autoethnography to examine their efforts to support students’ literacy development. Working from the literature and pedagogical reflections, the authors offer suggestions for instructional practice ...


Connecting To Place In The Literacy Classroom, Rachelle Kuehl 2021 Virginia Tech

Connecting To Place In The Literacy Classroom, Rachelle Kuehl

Virginia English Journal

Motivation research indicates that students need to be interested in the subject matter about which they are learning, and this article describes how connecting to place can pique students’ interest in writing and reading tasks. Place-based literacy practices, or those that allow opportunities for students to explore their out-of-school interests in authentic ways, have been shown to engage rural students in literacy learning. This article presents examples of writing projects found in the literature that incorporate an emphasis on place (e.g., photo essays, project-based learning assignments, community interviews). Resources for helping students find books connected to their sense of ...

Empowering Children's Literature For Stressful Times, Barbara C. Wheatley Ed.D., Jennifer Whorrall Turner Ed.D.

Virginia English Journal

Abstract

Reading and books are synonymous with children and education. Caregivers and educators alike understand the many benefits of reading books to help children learn about their world but also to help manage emotions.

Bibliotherapy is explored as the practice of clinically and educationally using literature to help children deal with anxiety and stress.

Breaking The Feedback Loop: Experimental Filmmakers Confronting Everyday Surveillance Technologies, Taz Coffey 2021 Portland State University

Breaking The Feedback Loop: Experimental Filmmakers Confronting Everyday Surveillance Technologies, Taz Coffey

University Honors Theses

Along with shifts in how surveillance technologies work to control and capitalize on everyday life comes a need to understand and critique them. What past and present paranoid dystopian stories and other pop-culture parables seem to leave out is any thoughtful consideration of how surveillance racializes bodies and consolidates power in favor of racist hegemony, specifically in a post-9/11 context. We often fail to question in what ways popular discourse on surveillance and resistance to surveillance practices reinforce violence against--and consolidate control over--marginalized populations. Part of this almost willful negligence, I believe, is symptomatic of visibility’s status as ...
