Reading, Writing and Self-Regulation

Charles MacArthur, School of Education, worked with colleagues to develop an innovative and effective instructional plan to help students in community college strengthen their writing skills. By integrating graphic organizers and collaborative writing strategies, students not only become better writers, but also improve study skills.  The research team has received a five-year, $3-million grant through IES to further test and expand their curriculum.
