My research aims to explore effective means for transferring scholarship conducted within academia to undergraduate students seeking to become K-12 teachers. Though this research largely occurs within the context of social studies education, my work often applies to broader aims of education which include — though are not limited to — developing reform-oriented teachers who use progressive pedagogy, creating curriculum designed to promote diversity, and encouraging reflective practices among educators at all levels in their career.
