Join us for the September Crane Research Forum with Dr. Shayne Piasta, Crane faculty associate and professor of literacies, literatures, and language arts in the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University
The Nemours BrightStart! program is a widely available emergent literacy intervention. Dr. Piasta will share findings from a recent Crane Center study in which the intervention was trialed by teachers and community aides in authentic preschool settings. These findings highlight the importance of studying interventions when implemented in real-world conditions and provide insight into supporting preschoolers identified as at-risk for later literacy difficulties.
Dr. Piasta’s expertise is in early literacy development. She wants to better understand how teachers, classrooms, and other factors impact children’s literacy gains. Her research emphasizes using rigorous methods to identify and validate educational programs and practices, including specific curricula and professional development. Among many honors, Dr. Piasta received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
