Faculty Awarded Outstanding Early Career Scholar Award for Learning & Instruction

Dr. Sabina Neugebauer was awarded the Outstanding Early Career Scholar Award for Division C: Learning and Instruction at the 2017 American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting. This prestigious award recognizes the scholarly contributions of an outstanding early career scholar to the field of learning and instruction across the lifespan and among diverse populations. Dr. Neugebauer’s research focuses on the literacy development of traditionally underserved students in under-performing elementary and middle schools. Her research examines two essential components of literacy development: vocabulary and reading motivation. What sets her research agenda apart is that she investigates these two facets of reading at three complementary levels of analysis (individual, classroom, and school context) to more comprehensively identify ways to support students in achieving equitable educational outcomes.
