Katz presents at 30th annual NYAR Conference with COE alumnus

Anne Katz, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Curriculum, Foundations and Reading (pictured right), presented alongside College of Education alumnus and Mitchell Sexton, M.Ed. Reading (2018), at the National Youth-at-Risk Conference held March 3-6 in Savannah.

Their presentation, “Transforming Literacy Learning: Action Research through the Lens of a Reading Specialist,” detailed an action research plan centered around literacy instruction through the course of a traditional semester. The plan, developed by Sexton as a part of his master’s curriculum, analyzed the validity, reliability and personal bias inherent in his action research study; developed a literature review on a research topic; implemented a plan for conducting action research; and applied evaluation criteria to his own project. Katz served as Sexton’s faculty mentor during the project.
