Curt Dudley Marling Reviews

Curt Dudley-Marling recently retired from Boston College after 33 years working as a teacher instructor at universities in the usa and Canada. He began his career as an elementary special education teacher teaching for seven years at schools in Ohio and Wisconsin before earning his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Curt briefly returned to the classroom in the early 1990s, taking a one-year depart to teach 3rd grade. Over the span of his academic career, Curt educated courses in literacy and language including early reading and writing strategies courses for prospective teachers. He has published over 100 articles and book chapters and 14 books, much of the work focusing on literacy and language, Disability Studies, and classroom talk. Overall, his scholarship stands as a critique of deficit perspectives that implicate the families, customs, and language of all pupils living in poverty in their high levels of school failure. His latest study examines the effect of evidence-based discussion in elementary classrooms, especially for pupils that are assumed to be more at risk for academic failure. Besides his scholarly work, Curt has worked widely in the schools helping teachers improve their training with young readers and writers. Curt is a former co-editor of the NCTE journal Language Arts and former chair of NCTE’s Elementary Section. In 2014 he was respected as the first Kate Welling Distinguished Scholar in Disability Studies at Miami University at Oxford, Ohio. Curt's webpage can be visited at
