Where da heat go? Agency, Identity, and Science
Angela Calabrese Barton, Michigan State University (Click name for speaker's biography)
Contact Karen Lenhart (email@example.com) directly if you'd like to meet with Dr. Barton.
Dr. Angela Calabrese Barton will present a data-driven framework for unpacking the development of "agency in science" and its relationship to learning among low-income urban middle school students in and out of school. Drawing primarily upon critical ethnographic data, Dr. Calabrese Barton will discuss how youth seek to position themselves as learners and experts by exerting the identity of Community Science Experts in ways that simultaneously take up and break down the contradictory roles of being a producer and a critic of science/education. These findings suggest that youth actively appropriate subject matter knowledge and project tasks in order to challenge the types of roles and student voice traditionally available to students in the classroom.
