Biography

Dr. Meyer studies learning, reading and writing, and decision-making across the lifespan. She also teaches learners of various ages and backgrounds a reading strategy focusing on using the structure in text (the structure strategy) to improve their reading comprehension. Her research team is developing and testing an intelligent tutor to teach the structure strategy (ITSS) to students in Grades 4 - 8 as well as adapting ITSS to English Language Learners and to writing informative and persuasive essays.  The U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences is funding this research about using and adapting structure strategy instruction through Development and Efficacy grants.
