Albright, James; Purohit, Kiran D. and Walsh, Christopher S. (2005). Chinatown: globalization, hybridity and literacy education. In: Redesigning Pedagogy: Research, Policy, Practice Conference, 30 May - 01 Jun 2005, Nanyang, Singapore.



In this paper, we examine some of the data from a 3-year study with students at a small, public middle school in New York City’s Chinatown. As part of a larger study of multiliteracies in a transdisciplinary curriculum (Albright, Purohit, & Walsh, under review), we undertook a project with 60 students to identify literacy practices in their lives—in and out of school. As the project progressed, we used data collected with students to decide on the next steps.
