This year, Dr. Megan Franke (PI) and Dr. Christine Lee (Co-Investigator) will collaborate with Early Childhood teachers Kelly Peters, Eric Varela, and Arlen Vidal-Castro to research how UCLA Lab School Kindergarten students develop language, storytelling, and writing skills. As Kindergarten students are still developing how to decode and comprehend text, it is also important to continuously cultivate narrative and creative storytelling skills. Our research aims to explore how we can support students’ skills and identities as dynamic storytellers through wordless picture books. The research will include: video recordings of classroom activities on storytelling and photographs of students’ written stories. Any questions about the project can be directed to Dr. Megan Franke at email@example.com or Dr. Christine Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
