Kelly C. Johnston
Researcher. Writer. Educator.
My research is grounded in challenging current conceptions of 'literacy' and 'schooling' that oversimplify the complex processes of meaning-making and subsequently marginalize youth and their learning potential.
Ultimately, I see literacy as a social justice issue, and I see social justice as inherent to humanity and the pressing need for change.
