For most of my career in academia, my scholarship has focused on the field of adolescent literature. The bulk of the more than 40 peer-reviewed and invited articles and book chapters and 85 peer-reviewed and invited presentations at international and national conferences has focused on the integration of adolescent literature in the middle and high school curriculum. However, I have also done considerable work in the area of teacher preparation and professional development at the secondary school level.
