Deborah Van Duinen receives new award from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation

Deborah Van Duinen, Associate Professor of Education, recently received a $2,500 award from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation Youth Literacy Grant Program.  The project is titled Big Read Lakeshore: Improving Adolescents Attitudes Toward Reading.

With this award, participating English teachers in The Big Read who work with students reading below grade level will receive curricular/instructional support to increase their students’ self-concepts as readers and the perceived value of reading. 

Congratulations, Deborah, on your new award!
