Most of the courses I teach deal with matters of literacy and equity. Together, students and I explore scholarship on power and privilege in relation to literacies, and we consider applications of that research in everyday life and in classrooms. My hope is that students will leave our courses armed with a deep understanding of scholarship to help guide future professional and personal decisions and that they will feel empowered to use their growing understandings to become agents of change on behalf of children and in partnership with families and other professionals. Most important, perhaps, is that we leave courses with a shared eagerness to continue learning, questioning, and seeking collaborations with others in our development.
