My research focuses on strengthening middle grades education for young adolescents, those ages 9-15, including studying improvement efforts in policy and practice affecting middle grades schools; the professional learning of middle grades educators and the preparation of prospective middle grades teachers, specifically on-site in a professional development school; and the history and impact of progressive philosophies and related practices such as integrated curriculum, service-learning, and democratic teaching and learning.
