ACYIG Newsletter highlights – Childhood and Deafness

Are you interested in exploring children’s language socialization? Have you considered using “photovoice” to give children a voice in your research? Check out Anne Pfister’s column “Childhood and Deafness” in the latest edition of the ACYIG Newsletter (pp. 4-6):

Just Published: Guidance for Researchers of Adolescent Sexual Health

Of interest for researchers:
A new commentary in the Journal of Adolescent Health that provides guidance on improving research methodology in adolescent sexual health research, with particular focus on how to identify and avoid assumptions about genders, bodies, sexuality, relating styles, and cultural norms commonly made by researchers.

This is a brief (only 2 journal pages) but informative piece that would be useful in research methods courses to give students a broad overview of critical thinking in research design or as a reference for researchers who wish to justify making methodological decisions that challenge problematic norms in research design, including quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research.

The paper can be downloaded from:
