Clark University education professor Sarah Michaels has been selected to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Educational Research Association.

The award is presented to a researcher in recognition of contributions to social contexts in education research.

“I am deeply humbled and honored by this award. I will do everything in my power to pay it forward in all I do with students, teachers, and colleagues -- to live up to the commitment to equity and social justice that Division G -- Social Context in Education -- stands for,” said Michaels.

She will receive the award at the 2018 AERA Annual meeting in April.

About Michaels

Prior to coming to Clark in 1990, Michaels served as director of the Literacies Institute in Newton, which was funded by the Mellon Foundation, and directed projects on language and schooling while serving as a research associate and instructor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Michaels co-authored an award-winning book, “Ready, Set, Science!: Putting Research to Work in the K-8 Science Classroom,” for the National Research Council and co-authored a CD-ROM suite of tools, Accountable Talk: Classroom Conversation that Work, which has been used in large urban districts throughout the country.

Michaels is the founding director of Clark’s Hiatt Center for Urban Education; she also helped found two interdisciplinary majors, Cultural Studies and Communication (CSAC) and Community, Youth, and Education Studies (CYES), the latter of which has been recognized by the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) as a “Civic Responsibility by Design” model in education. Professor Michaels is also affiliated with Clark’s programs in Communication and Culture and Urban Development and Social Change. 

Since 2013, Professor Michaels has been a part of a national research, design, and implementation effort to introduce the Next Generation Science Exemplar (NGSX), a web-based resource for teacher education and professional development for K-12 science educators.
