Dr. Angela Wiseman
Angela Wiseman is a scholar in the field of literacy education with a research agenda that has focused on understanding classroom practices that promote an expanded view of literacy learning through multimodal, sociocultural and transactional theories of literacy. Dr. Wiseman’s teaching and research have been guided by the concepts of social justice and the importance of recognizing students’ “funds of knowledge.” As a former elementary school teacher and reading specialist, her understanding of literacy learning is grounded in her classroom experiences and interactions with students in diverse urban and suburban settings.
