Chronicle of Middle Level Education
In July 2020 the MLER SIG released a living document to articulate our position and commitments to the work of dismantling systems of racism in the realm of middle level scholarship and education. (See statement here: MLER SIG Living Statement -also included below.) As we work collectively to actualize this statement, we are preparing a special issue of The Chronicle to curate the following resources:
- Annotated bibliography of scholarship by MLER SIG members that centers on themes addressed in our living statement on dismantling systems of racism;
- Bibliography with available links to anti-racist research and writing by scholars outside of the SIG that might inform middle level education research and practice;
- Bibliography with available links to research and writing related to liberatory pedagogies and methodologies to inform our scholarship;
- For BIPOC MLER SIG members: Bibliography with available links to any of your research and writing.
We look forward to compiling your submissions to create a robust resource for us to share. You can submit your contributions to: Chronicle Special Issue: Dismantling Racism Submissions are due by September 1, 2020.
