Lisa Richardson, Assistant Professor in the School of Education, moved to Juneau this past summer from Oakland, CA, where she was working as a Research Associate with the Strategic Literacy Initiative at WestEd Labs. Lisa received her doctorate in Language, Reading, and Culture from the University of Arizona, with a minor in Rhetoric and Composition. Her areas of research include disciplinary literacies, particularly the acquisition of academic language and literacy for students who are learning English as an additional language. Her work with immigrant and refugee students in Tucson, AZ, as well as her work with secondary students on a Navajo reservation in NM, inform both her research and teaching. Lisa is currently teaching graduate level courses in literacy for teachers in the Master's of Reading/Reading Specialist program.
