Elizabeth B Moje
Moje studies the intersection of youth literacy, culture, and identity in urban communities and secondary schools. In her community ethnography, Moje focuses particularly on the literacy, identity, and cultural practices of traditionally marginalized adolescents, whereas her in-school research (ethnographic, survey, and experimental work) includes the study of literacy as a tool for learning in academic disciplines. Two primary goals of her work are to inform the study of adolescent development and to inform school-based practices in the secondary school subject matter areas. Current funded projects include Making “Makin’ It Possible (William T. Grant Foundation), Developing Scientific Literacy Through the Use of Innovative Textual Tools (National Science Foundation), and Study of Social and Cultural Influences on Adolescent Development and Motivation (NICHD/OSERS/OVAE).
