CLASE researcher's article noted for its popularity
An article by a CLASE researcher has been named among Taylor & Francis Publishing's most popular, according to Altmetrics scoring.
The publisher collected top articles in 17 different education-related topics as part of its #ReadMyResearch campaign, and Rolf Straubhaar, assistant director for research at the Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education, was named among the top three authors in the "Comparative and International Education" category.
Altmetrics uses mentions online in blogs, newspapers, social media and more to calculate the popularity of an article.
Straubhaar's article, "The stark reality of the 'White Saviour' complex and the need for critical consciousness: A document analysis of the early journals of a Freirean educator," was published in the journal Compare. In it, Straubhaar analyzed a year of his journal entries while working as a Freirean educator in Mozambique through the lens of race and class, and how these factors may influence a teacher's outlook.
