Summer Research Spotlight: Melinda Morrill

Melinda Morrill, professor of economics, was recently awarded $53,447 from the Wake County Public School System to continue measuring the educational benefit of the Reading Apprenticeship (RA) program. The RA program was implemented by the U.S. Department of Education’s Magnet School Assistance program in Southeast Raleigh High School. 

The program is a family of high school programs to improve student literacy through integrating metacognitive strategy instruction into content areas. Morrill’s other research revolves around the impact of high school start times on student absences.
