Research Wednesdays Presentation:  Lessons For School Effectiveness From Bilingual Research

Presenter: Lee Branum-Martin

Lee Branum-Martin is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology and The Language and Literacy Initiative at Georgia State University. He is involved in several College of Education grant projects, including the Center for the Study of Adult Literacy, the Center for Literacy and Deafness and the Learning Disabilities Innovation Hub. His current research focuses on measurement issues in language and literacy, which he pursues through empirically testing theory, examining multilevel statistical models to disentangle social and contextual effects, and exploring bilingualism and second language learning.

In this presentation, Branum-Martin will highlight findings from multilevel models in bilingual research for their applicability to issues regarding language and literacy skills among children, the complex nature of instruction, and the connections between children, classrooms, and growth over time.

A light lunch will be served to those who RSVP to Erin Whitney in the COE’s Educational Research Bureau at (404) 413-8090 or ewhitney@gsu.edu.
