W.Y. Alice Chan’s Professional e-Portfolio


As a PhD candidate at McGill University’s Department of Integrated Studies in Education, I miss the classroom interaction with my middle school students but I am successfully making gains in my research on religious literacy and religious bullying — bullying that occurs based on one’s belief, and/or one’s actual or perceived religious or religiously unaffiliated identity.

As a teacher-researcher, I am passionate about the inclusion of all students and focused my previous research on how teachers can address religion in an inclusive secular public school classroom.  My current research aims to support teachers by sharing existing practices on religious literacy in secular settings and support teachers and students through on-line and in-school religious bullying.

As I recently completed my study in Modesto, I had an opportunity to share my findings with religious and non-religious communities there. At each presentation, handouts were shared and they are accessible here. Spanish translations will be posted soon.

My study has also been featured in a recent news article in Modesto. Findings from Montreal (in my comparative study of Modesto and Montreal) will be posted shortly in English and French.
