Culturally relevant pedagogy and culturally sustaining pedagogy
Literacy teacher preparation
Cori Salmerón is an assistant professor of language and (bi) literacy in the Department of Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Salmerón is a former elementary school teacher in New York City and Beirut, Lebanon. Her teaching and personal experiences led to her research focused on multilingual students’ language and literacy practices, how teachers enact culturally sustaining pedagogy and preparing teachers to work with students from a wide range of cultural and linguistic communities. Her research provides insights into translanguaging as both a linguistic practice and a culturally sustaining pedagogy. She teaches undergraduate courses on literacy methods.
She has presented at national conferences including the American Educational Research Association, Literacy Research Association and National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). Her research has been published in the Journal of Literacy Research, Research in the Teaching of English, Bilingual Research Journal, Multicultural Perspectives, ISTOR: Revista de Historia Internacional and Literacy Research: Theory, Methods, and Practice. Salmerón is a member of the 2020-2022 NCTE Cultivating New Voices Among Scholars of Color (CNV) Cohort.
