My work focuses on preparing social studies teachers to cultivate the civic capacities of youth and adolescents. My research examines several dimensions that influence the preparation of social studies teachers such as learning to teach for social justice, teacher learning during field experiences, the implications of teacher education policy, and the pedagogy of teacher education.
