Presentation: Katrina Liu

Katrina Liu (Teaching & Learning) gave an invited presentation to the National Council of Research on Language and Literacy (NCRLL) In Baltimore earlier this month. Titled "Using Critical Counter-Narratives to Prepare Prospective Teachers of Color," the paper was part of a panel on Stories of Possibilities, Generativity, and Humanity: Distinguished Educators Working for Change, which was organized in recognition of NCRLL Distinguished Scholar awardees Arnetha Ball, the Charles E. Ducomm Professor in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University, and Denny Taylor, professor of literacy studies at Hofstra University. Liu was one of three scholars selected as "emerging voices" by the council to present on this occasion.
