Jennifer Wallace Jacoby
Jennifer Jacoby is interested in how both children and teachers develop in school contexts. In particular, she seeks to understand how teachers can best support the learning of linguistically and socio-economically diverse groups of children. Jacoby's current research investigates how school settings support the language and literacy development of young English learning children, as well as, how these school settings support the professional learning of the teachers who work with English learners. She uses both qualitative and quantitative methods in her research.
