  • The Legacy of English Education at NYU

    John S. Mayher, Coeditor

    Abstract: With the retirements of John Mayher, Marilyn Sobelman, and Gordon Pradl, the NYU program in English education marks the end of an era. To reflect on and celebrate that legacy, we organized a session at, appropriately, the New York Convention of NCTE in November 2007. Featuring the retiring faculty and a random collection of our alumni, the session was celebration, reunion, and sober reflection on the past present and future of NYU’s program.

  • The Trouble Is English: Reframing English Studies in Secondary Schools

    Lydia Brauer and Caroline T. Clark

    Abstract: Examining the sociocultural hierarchies implicit in the ways in which texts are positioned in and out of classrooms may significantly broaden our ability to ask questions about texts and power—the heart of the English education mission “to envision a more democratic and just society” (Alsup, Emig, Pradl, Tremmel, & Yagelski, 2006, p. 281). To ignore these positions risks a significant silence regarding the ways in which texts live in and shape the world.

  • Supporting Teacher Educators’ Use of Hypermedia Video-Based Programs

    Erica Boling and Sharman Siebenthal Adams

    Abstract: This article provides critical feedback to teacher educators not only on general literacy and technology issues but also firsthand experiences implementing a hypermedia, video-based environment in university courses. This article also presents some of the challenges that individuals might face when integrating hypermedia, video-based tools such as Reading Classroom Explorer (RCE) into classrooms.

  • Teaching and Learning Dialogically Organized Reading Instruction

    Maren S. Aukerman, Monica A. Belfatti, and Diane M. Santori

    Abstract: There is substantial evidence that children and adolescents learn more in dialogic environments and have a deeper understanding of what they read. But looking beyond these measures for student performance (which are helpful in quelling the concerns of those who sound the drumbeat for standards-based instruction), we believe there are strong philosophical reasons for establishing classroom contexts in which students’ voices shape the direction of subsequent learning.
