ABOUT ME

I have taught English (high school & college) for more than 30 years and since 2007 have worked with students to shift approaches to reading. These shifts have included the development of an inquiry and action curricular framework which urges and scaffolds reading shifts.

My students’ work, generated through the inquiry-driven framework as well as through other approaches, is the essential source of my learning about  reading shifts. I continue to deepen my thinking and perspective through reading of, and conversation with, theorists and other educators.

Through this site and beyond it, I seek to help other educators make shifts in their thinking about higher-level reading practices that are relevant to the world in which we live.
