Enid Rosario-Ramos’s research focuses on studying the intersections between adolescents’ participation in civic engagement activities and their development of critical literacy skills. Current work looks at the ways in which educators, both in school and out of school contexts, support youth’s development of civic engagement identities and skills. She received her PhD in learning sciences from Northwestern University. Her dissertation looked at the ways in which schools’ institutional structures, teachers’ discursive practices, and classroom instruction support and encourage adolescents to critically examine their worlds and their textual representations. Additional research interests include teacher education, disciplinary literacies, and social justice education.
