Kristien Zenkov is a professor of literacy education at George Mason University and the co-director of the "Through Students Eyes" project, which asks diverse high school and middle school youth to document with photographs and writing what they believe are the purposes of school. He received his PhD in Teacher Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and was a faculty member at Cleveland State University before coming to George Mason. He has published more than one hundred articles and book chapters and four books concerning urban teacher education, social justice education, Professional Development Schools, language arts pedagogy, and curriculum standards in English Journal, Visual Studies, Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, Educational Action Research, Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, and School-Practitioner Quarterly. While at Cleveland State Dr. Zenkov served as the Director of the Master of Urban Secondary Teaching (MUST) Program—an award-winning urban and social justice focused masters licensure option—and coordinated partnerships with high schools in four urban school districts. He continues his professional development schools efforts at George Mason through partnerships with Alexandria, Washington, DC, Fairfax, and Manassas schools. Dr. Zenkov and his colleagues have been awarded grants (totaling nearly $2 million) from private foundations and the US Department of Education in support of the "Through Students Eyes" (TSE) project and numerous other urban teacher education, conflict resolution, and teacher mentoring studies and programs. Most recently he has conducted TSE with youth in Sierra Leone, Haiti, and Iraq. He has taught language arts and drama in city high schools across the country, and while at Cleveland State continued to co-teach a 10th grade English class with Jim Harmon. Dr. Zenkov currently serves as the editor of "School-University Partnerships," is writing and editing two books on social justice in education, and is a board member or reviewer for the National Association for Professional Development Schools, the Journal of Teacher Education, Urban Education, and Equity and Excellence in Education.
