Judith Green of UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School won the 2009 Outstanding Reviewer Award from Education Researcher. The award was presented to Green at the 2010 American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting in Denver, CO, on April 30. In addition to this award, Green and her co-editors were recognized as outgoing editors for the Review of Research in Education, volumes 30, 32, 34, 2006; 2008; 2010 respectively.
Green says, “This recognition from the editors of the Educational Researcher was unexpected and particularly meaningful since I view reviewing the work of colleagues in the field, early career and senior scholars, as both a privilege and as a unique opportunity to contribute to the quality of the research reported in education.”
Judith Green, a professor in the Department of Education at the Gevirtz School, has been teaching for more than 4 decades across levels of schooling (K-20). She received her M.A. in Educational Psychology from California State University, Northridge and her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, where she explored the relationships between teaching and learning, literacy and knowledge construction. Green’s recent research focuses on how classroom practices support access to students across academic disciplines in classrooms and in virtual communities. Green was recently named a fellow of the American Educational Research Association.
She is a co-director of LINC, the Center for Education Research for Literacy and Inquiry in Networking Communities, where she works with teachers and researchers to explore how the new advanced technology networks support innovative learning opportunities. Green and her colleagues have an approach to curriculum and technology in which teachers and students create a virtual and interactive community in which they plan collaborative research across city, state, and national borders and share their local inquiry to make global connections.
