My primary research interests are in children's moral / social development and reasoning, critical and social justice pedagogy, and digital media. I take a critical approach to moral development, investigating ways in which a developmental framework can illuminate possibilities for critical pedagogy and critical moral reasoning. I am especially interested in how digital media production (e.g. podcasting, multimedia journalism) in classroom settings facilitates a process of students rethinking and revising conclusions and judgments about the world and themselves. As part of enacting critical moral development in the classroom, I am interested in culturally-sustaining frameworks of social-emotional education and strategies for responding to student trauma and chronic stress in educational environments.
