Scaling Up a Promising Approach to Narrowing the SES Achievement Gap in Primary-Grade Social Studies and Content Literacy

Primary Investigator(s): Nell Duke

Funding Agency: Spencer Foundation

Amount: $500,000

Period: 9/1/2012 - 8/31/2015

The proposed project would test the impact of an approach we have developed to teaching social studies and content literacy in primary-grade classrooms. Both of these areas are neglected in U.S. primary-grade education, particularly in low-SES school settings.
