Congratulations to Project READI!

 

At the 2017 meeting of the Literacy Research Association, the Project READI team was honored as the recipient of the Arthur Applebee Award for Excellence in Research on Literacy.

 

The award was based on the publication of the following article:

The Literacy Research Association established this annual award to honor an outstanding article in literacy research published in a refereed journal in the previous calendar year.  The award is presented in collaboration with the University at Albany School of Education, in memory of University at Albany Distinguished Professor Arthur N. Applebee, internationally renowned for his seminal scholarship in the fields of literacy and language learning.
