Mary Juzwik studies issues in English education, including narrative processes and classroom discourse; dialogue in teaching and teacher education; dialogic writing theory, instruction, and practice; and most recently, religious literacy practices, pedagogies, and traditions. Her award-winning teaching and research around these issues engages with scholarly traditions such as narrative studies, interactional sociolinguistics, rhetorical theory, and religious studies. Alongside numerous articles, essays, reviews, and commentaries, she authored The Rhetoric of Teaching: Understanding the Dynamics of Holocaust Narratives in an English Classroom (Hampton, 2009) and co-authored Inspiring Dialogue: Talking to Learn in the English Classroom (Teachers College Press, 2013) and Reading and Writing Genre with Purpose in K-8 Classrooms (Heinemann, 2012). She co-edited Narrative Discourse Analysis for Teacher Educators (Hampton, 2011) and is outgoing co-editor of Research in the Teaching of English.
