Graduate School of Education doctoral candidate publishes article

Congratulations to Jason DeHart, a doctoral candidate in Literacy Studies, whose article “Strategies for a Safe Literacy Space for English Language Learners” was recently published in the April-June 2018 issue of Kappa Delta Pi Record. The article was inspired by Jason’s work with an English Language Learner (ELL) in two hybrid clinical reading education courses. In the article, Jason suggests a number of powerful strategies he tried with his student, such as using authentic and electronic texts, translating and cognates. Jason writes, “ELLs are not just casual visitors passing through our classrooms; they are our kids too, and they should be engaged and challenged in meaningful ways.”
