New RRE Volume Released
March 2013

This month, AERA releases the 2013 volume of Review of Research in Education (RRE), coedited by Christian Faltis and Jamal Abedi. The volume, entitled “Extraordinary Pedagogies for Working Within School Settings Serving Nondominant Students,” includes ten informative chapters covering a broad array of sociocultural issues.  

As the editors note in their introduction, “extraordinary pedagogies are not only possible but also necessary to interrupt and challenge the current educational establishment that has attempted to refocus attention on learning outcomes, without taking into account the larger issues of race, class, poverty, and language.”

A session at the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting will examine the new volume and will feature comments by the editors. The session will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2:15 p.m.–3:45 p.m.
