Scott Beck, Ph.D.

Yasar Bodur, Ph.D.

Scott Beck, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Middle Grades and Secondary Education,  and Yasar Bodur, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Elementary and Special Education, published an article in the 2018 edition of “Transformations: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy.”

The article, “Reading about What it is Really like is Eye-Opening,” outlines a set of three parallel-structured, mixed-method research and instructional projects that have sought to assess the appeal and effectiveness of books for youth being utilized in the college classroom. Focus was placed on books that addressed three of the most hotly debated political and social controversies of our time: immigrants and migrants, gender and sexual diversity, and Islam and Islamophobia. The article was co-authored Beck and Bodur and colleagues Dina Walker-Devose, Caren Town and Trina Smith.
