Joanne E. Marciano’s research engages qualitative participatory methodologies to highlight opportunities for supporting youth’s literacy learning across contexts of urban education, secondary English education, college access and teacher education. Joanne’s work continues to be informed by her experiences teaching secondary English for 13 years in a public high school in Brooklyn, NY. A central part of her research agenda involves highlighting opportunities for culturally and linguistically diverse youth to examine how their schooling experiences are influenced by challenges and tensions that emerge when students encounter educational inequities. Her current research projects include a collaborative youth co-researcher study examining issues of educational opportunity as experienced by youth across multiple school contexts, and an analysis of the experiences of educators across 40 secondary schools in New York City as they seek to enact a culturally relevant, school- wide, college-going culture in their school communities supportive of Black and Latino male students’ college readiness and access.
