Two C&I grad. students receive distinguished award

Please join the Curriculum and Instruction community in congratulating
their two Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship recipients. Brant Miller
(PhD candidate in the science education track, adviser Gill Roehrig)
and Jessica Moyer (PhD candidate in the literacy education track,
adviser David O'Brien) have been awarded Doctoral Dissertation
Fellowships
for 2010-2011 from the Graduate School. This highly
competitive fellowship will support Miller and Moyer in their research
and dissertation research during the the 2010-11 academic year.
Miller's research involves looking at the development of science
agency in American Indian middle school students as a result of
experiencing a culturally relevant science, technology, engineering,
and mathematics (STEM) curriculum. Moyer's research is a study of
comprehension, engagement and interest across three leisure reading
formats: print books, e-books, and digital audiobooks among older
adolescents.
