Awards

2018 Recipient

Gloria J. Ladson-Billings
University of Wisconsin, Madison

Dr. Gloria J. Ladson-Billings is Kellner Family Distinguished Chair in Urban Education, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Dr. Ladson-Billings is recognized for her pioneering and innovative research contributions on inequality, teaching, and learning in education settings in the United States and around the world. Her conceptual, theoretical, and empirical contributions related to culturally relevant teaching include an approach that “uses student culture in order to maintain it and to transcend the negative effects of the dominant culture.” In a culturally relevant educational venue, a child’s culture is seen as a source of strength on which to rely and not a problem to be overcome or something completely invisible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This award is given to honor a meritorious contributor to educational research; its purpose is to publicize, motivate, encourage, and suggest models for educational research at its best.

From 1964 through 1973 the award was given jointly with Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) and was known as the AERA-PDK Awards. After 1974 AERA took sole responsibility for making the selection.
