todd destigter

Associate Professor

Todd DeStigter's principal scholarly interests are secondary English teacher education, urban literacies, the ways in which teaching and learning can promote democratic thought and action, and the social and political philosophy of John Dewey. Recently, Todd has taught courses in the methods of teaching English, the uses of literacy in a multicultural democracy, and the contributions of American pragmatism to progressive education. Most of his recent publications are based on the ethnographic research he conducts at a Chicago alternative high school for "at risk" students.
