Alvermann, Donna E.; Price, LaTasha Hutcherson; Jackson, A. J. – Journal of Education, 2016
By definition, an epilogue is a concluding segment of a literary work that often describes the futures of its main characters.

Leaning in the direction of the latter, we propose as writers of this epilogue to engage in a bit of poetic…

Muhammad, Gholnecsar E. – Journal of Education, 2015
Coupling Royster's (2000) conceptual framework of "zamani" with Rosenblatt's (1978) reader response theory, the researcher explores the ways African American women's writings supported, nurtured, and "mentored" the writings of adolescent girls. Findings show that the mentor texts helped in generating ideas for writing, thinking…

Muhammad, Gholnecsar E.; Tatum, Alfred W. – Journal of Education, 2015

Pearcy, Mark – Journal of Education, 2015
