Teaching and Research Interests
Morrell examines the possible intersections between indigenous urban adolescent literacies and the ìsanctionedî literacies of dominant institutions such as schools. Particularly, he is interested in the discourse of popular culture; adolescent literacy practices in non-school settings; critical literacy education; and urban teacher development. Morrell teaches courses on literacy theory and research, critical pedagogy, cultural studies, urban education, and ethnic studies.
