Josh Karr is a doctoral candidate at West Virginia University in the Educational Theory and Practice PhD program, focusing on secondary mathematics. His current research interests include designing and investigating pedagogies of practice as they (do not) attend to social justice purposes of education, how historical, political, and cultural structures can be represented within representations and approximations of practice, and how teacher candidates’ positioning of students can serve as a way to understand their dispositions and vision for teaching. He has also collaborated with Dr. Matthew Campbell, Dr. Erin Baldinger, Dr. Foster Graif, and Sean Freeland on projects relating to using scripting tasks in secondary math methods courses to understand teacher learning, representation of student voice within scripting tasks, learning to be a “coach” in coached rehearsals, and understanding the development of teacher candidates’ enactment tools across time and contexts.
