The Postdoctoral Program in Educational Research. Final Report.
Williams, Joanna P.
The major goals of this postdoctoral study were preparation in psycholinguistics, and training and experience in the field of reading, as well as a review and updating of competence in learning and child development. The first semester was spent at the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, N.Y., working on a project designed to test the hypothesis that children will have more difficulty understanding sentences in which certain words are used in relatively less frequent grammatical functions, as compared with sentences in which these words appear in their more frequent grammatical usages. The second semester was spent at Harvard Graduate School of Education attending courses and seminars in reading, methods of teaching reading, psycholinguistics, and attention in children's learning. The fellowship resulted in direct gains in scholarly work accomplished and insights gained from exposure to new and different approaches and also provided involvement in a world devoted to a high level of scholarship and research.
