Social Studies doctoral student Ashley Taylor is the recipient of the Dean’s Doctoral Research Fellowship for the 2012-2013 academic year. Taylor has been awarded the Fellowship for her dissertation work, titled Pedagogy for Latino/a Newcomer Students: A Study of Four Secondary Social Studies Teachers in New York City Urban Newcomer Schools.

Taylor’s research has brought her into four Social Studies classrooms in newcomer schools across New York City. Through her interviews with teachers and observations of classes comprised of English Language Learners, she has sought to investigate how Social Studies and citizenship education is conceptualized and implemented to culturally and linguistically diverse students.
