Literacy Teacher Educators Engaging With Broader Conceptions of Literacy

Mon, April 20, 4:05 to 5:35pm, Virtual Room


This large-scale research project examined the backgrounds, pedagogies, and practices of 30 literacy teacher educators (LTEs) in five countries: Canada, the United States, England, Australia, and Singapore. This paper focuses on a subset of 10 participating LTEs from the United States. The paper considers how these LTEs invite pre-service teachers to critically examine their initial conceptions of literacy and begin to develop dispositions to work with culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
