Early Childhood & Elementary Education |Literacy & Learners

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. Dr. Neugebauer 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.
