Performances of Research
In this alternative session, we invite the audience to participate in readings of three performative texts that explore the conflicts, contradictions, and tensions found in the everyday practices of: literacy assessment, special education meetings, and academic progress monitoring. As an alternative format for disseminating research, performance ethnography creates a space for stories to be told and retold, while providing readers and audiences a chance to participate in the retelling.
