Rhea Kennedy Morgenstern and Dr. Kathleen M. Wood, both of the English program, and Niesha Washington-Shepard, ’06 & G-’18, of the American Sign Language Program wrote a chapter in a newly-published book from the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). Their chapter, “Champ Technique: Engaging Cultural Wealth for Deaf and Marginalized Students with Shared Documents,” is in Special Issues, Volume 2: Critical Media Literacy: Bringing Critical Media Literacy into ELA Classrooms, edited by William Kist and Mary T. Christel. 

According to NCTE, “Most teachers and students across the country are grappling with several important issues. We hear from many educators who are looking for compelling and engaging approaches racial literacy, critical media literacy, and trauma-informed teaching. NCTE is responding to these needs with Special Issues, a series of books designed to directly address these pressing topics in K-12 and college classrooms today. The first volumes collect content on these topics from across all of NCTE’s journals in one place, to make the most relevant material accessible and practical. Edited by expert practitioners in the field, each volume contains teaching tips to help implement these approaches in classrooms. Subsequent volumes feature newly written contributions.” 

Congratulations to our three faculty members!
