The Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment would like to thank all those supervisors who have effectively communicated with students and our office when new positions become available and when they have been filled. Our office would also like to remind all supervisors to notify our office when a position has been filled so we may remove the posting from our website and to notify Kristen Clinton the Student Employment and Communications Manager about new employment opportunities for our CC students. By providing our office with a job description to advertise, you are encouraging equal opportunity amongst our campus.

Thank you for all the wonderful employment opportunities that have been provided for our CC students.

Literacy as a Human Right: General K-12 Educators as Literacy Gatekeepers

Ever wonder how to study your own pedagogy? In this talk I will share an example of using my own pedagogy as a space for action research & contributing to the scholarship in teacher education. I will then open the floor to brainstorming ways in which other CC scholars could do similar work in their disciplines.

In this particular study, I am concerned with the fact that students with disabilities are continuously denied literacy rich experiences with their non-disabled peers in K-12 settings. This talk will frame how narrow, ability-focused teacher dispositions can perpetuate low expectations and can preemptively deny students with disabilities access to meaningful literacy experiences. I will share an ongoing project that focuses on developing preservice and in-service teachers inclusive literacy dispositions through targeted instructional interventions. I will detail one instructional intervention that has been tested across the country and in the CC MAT/9th semester teacher preparation program. Over the course of four years, this intervention has proven to shift narrow, ability-orientated dispositions to broader and more inclusive conceptualizations that support students with disabilities.
