UGA Gets $1.5 M To Study Reading

UGA researcher Scott Ardoin has been awarded a $1.5 million federal grant to study various approaches to teaching reading.

Ardoin will use eye-tracking technology to determine the best strategy for increasing language and vocabulary. The study will explore the reading fluency of second graders at a local school district.

Ardoin is an associate professor in the UGA College of Education. The grant for his four-year study is from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences.
