In early April, thousands of researchers and educators will attend the annual meetings of the American Educational Research Association. This year, colleagues and I will reflect on “participatory research” with children (Saturday, April 5, 10:35 am!). While so much research is focused on children, too many educational studies are divorced from working with youth to understand their everyday perspectives and experiences. Come think with us, as we discuss the successes we’ve had and ethical challenges we’ve faced with integrating youth perspectives and energy into research. I’m also excited to be working with Jin Sook Lee (co-chair) and Melinda Martin-Beltran (discussant) to analyze language immersion schooling and its efforts to develop bilingualism, from Missouri to California, on Saturday, April 5, at 2:45 pm. See you in Philly!
