Our Study:

This study measures the impact of professional development with seasoned, elementary and middle school teachers in a multimedia environment on student performance. This study is funded by a Teacher Quality Research—Reading/Writing grant (CFDA # 84.305) and will focus on the professional development of instructional strategies that develop higher-level thinking skills in second through eighth grade learners. Students will be immersed in three, critical literacy inquiry projects over the course of their school year. Each of these inquiry projects will provide opportunities for students to interact with traditional and electronic texts and will focus on the instruction of comprehension. It is our goal to use comparison data to refine this professional development by measuring student performance in reading and writing. We anticipate that our findings will prepare us to test your successes on a national level.
