      GW@AERA: Dr. Catherine Snow


      Dr. Catherine Snow, Harvard Graduate School of Education

      In a discussion of emerging issues in child literacy, Dr. Catherine Snow will share her expertise on language and literacy development in children, including how oral language skills are acquired and how those skills relate to literacy outcomes.  Throughout her career, Snow has made significant contributions to theories of bilingualism and language acquisition.  Her research activities have included a 15-year longitudinal study of language and literacy skills among low-income children; an examination of language development among young children participating in the Early Head Start intervention; and a study of vocabulary development of first- and second-language learners.  Snow’s book, Preparing Our Teachers: Opportunities for Better Reading Instruction, is one of several efforts to develop consensus among teacher-educators about what pre- and in-service elementary teachers need to know about language and literacy.  Snow is the Henry Lee Shattuck Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
