About the Author

Sarah Hochstetler is Associate Professor of English at Illinois State University, USA.


"Hochstetler and the impressive team of literacy educators she assembled use multiple, resonant perspectives to unpack the history, critique the effects, and suggest ways of moving forward. We who teach or who educate teachers need a book like this to better position the being, doing, and becoming of literacy education." -Bob Fecho, Columbia University, USA

"Hochstetler has compiled a volume that is current and thought-provoking. Not only does this book discuss the history of reforms in literacy education and the effect on students and teachers, but more importantly, it also offers tools for initiating transformation in response to these reforms. A powerful work in helping to shape teachers as emerging change agents." -Amy Hsu, SUNY College at Old Westbury, USA "This edited volume is an important contribution for understanding the climate of school-based literacy instruction and learning. It offers a proactive look at how teachers today can and are advocating for the needs of their students, their profession, and themselves. It is a timely volume that builds on a foundation of teacher voice and expertise in paving the path for literacy education for the future." -Antero Garcia, Stanford University, USA
