    Biography

    ​Deborah Alvarez is an Associate Professor of English, who has dual educational preparation in written composition and teaching of writing. Her research interests parallel the educational interest: adolescent composing processes, writing pedagogy and writing literacy as it is affected by critical life events. Her second area of interest related to this is narrative writing, in terms of narrative story, primarily personal scholarly narratives and traumatic and tragic events turned into stories. 

    At the University of Delaware, Professor Alvarez teaches courses in writing pedagogy, narrative writing and Teaching of Writing for Middle and Secondary Language Arts pre-service teachers. Professor Alvarez also serves as Adjunct Faculty to the Disaster Research Center at the University of Delaware. 

    Her latest research work investigates how a young Haitian teacher learned English and founded a school to teach English as a means of survival in Haiti. Her earlier work investigated adolescent composing processes in situations where adolescents are victims of violence, abuse and natural disasters. She studies these conditions in social/cultural/educational context of the English Language Arts classroom, working with teachers as research subjects alongside the adolescents.

    Dr. Alvarez also provides workshops for teachers who have experienced violence, abuse and effects of disaster. Professor Alvarez wants to share this research information with school districts and teachers, and invites them to contact her at dmalva@udel.edu.
