Research interests

Research interests

Education for Diversity including literacy development, English as an Additional language, home school links, children’s literature, equity and social justice. Previous research included work on Threshold Concepts in becoming a teacher. Current research is on supporting Educators work in areas connected to immigration and intercultural understanding.

My teaching and research are linked to several projects which investigate how to support New Arrival children in mainstream classrooms using children’s literature as potential tools for creating their own multimodal identity texts.

I welcome postgraduate students who are interested in exploring culturally diverse pedagogies for 21st century classrooms.
