Stillman, Jamy A Associate Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Stillman’s research focuses on the factors that mediate teachers’ capacities to deliver equity-oriented, responsive instruction in high-poverty schools serving historically marginalized youth, especially Spanish-English bilingual students. Using qualitative methods, Dr. Stillman focuses primarily on two factors—education policy and features of university teacher education—to generate understandings about pre-service and practicing teachers’ learning and work across contexts, and the implications of this work and learning for culturally and linguistically diverse students’ opportunities to learn. Because she is concerned with how individual subjects’ work unfolds in relation to particular social structures and contexts, Dr. Stillman uses sociocultural perspectives on learning as guiding frameworks. Professor Stillman is also becoming increasingly interested in questions surrounding the preparation of urban teacher educators.
