Vaughn W. M. Watson is a former public high-school English teacher of 12 years in Brooklyn, N.Y. His areas of research focus are the interplay of literacy learning, and reimagining identities for Black youth and youth of color across socio-cultural contexts of English education, hip-hop and education, civic learning and action, and qualitative participatory research methodologies. His research examines how youth, making meaning of diverse literacies and identities across creative and artistic artifacts and practices affiliated with hip-hop, reframe understandings of changing mandates for student work, and teacher accountability.
