Culturally Responsive Approaches for Qualitative Inquiry and Program Evaluation
"Dr. Hall artfully demonstrates how to use culturally responsive focus groups for social justice through practical research techniques and case examples that show how the researcher can be an agent of change and give a voice to marginalized communities."
Stacy Penna, Ed.D., NVivo Community Director, QSR International

Transformative Pedagogy Inspired by Janusz Korczak
"In our increasingly diverse and interconnected world, bringing the life and work of Janusz Korczak into the classroom is of vital importance to teachers and students. As we advocate for students' social, emotional, and academic needs, Korczak provides innovative ideas and strategies for developing compassionate and culturally responsive classrooms. After participating in a recent Korczak educators’ workshop, I am now empowered to use his ideas to effectively educate the whole child and promote student agency and self-advocacy."

Black Student Leaders Analyze the Movement They Led
"The primary strength of Changing Academia Forever is that its interviewees and authors, who were directly involved in the 1968 strike, are able to give a longitudinal perspective to recount how the movement developed and changed over time. Its explanatory style makes it suitable as a resource for Black student activists as they make meaning of their own experiences and transformations. The book’s qualitative approach allows the reader to appreciate the particularities and complexities of the San Francisco State movement. The San Francisco State strike is not representative of the cascade of Black student movements that it sparked across the country in the 1960s and 1970s and that it continues to inspire today. Yet, the authors have presented a methodological approach to investigating Black student movements that can provide deeper levels of insight that are useful and instructive not only for scholars of Black student movements, but for leaders of Black student movements as well."
