Daniel Doorn, Ph.D., conducts ongoing collaborative research in student self-assessment of growth as readers and writers, children’s discoveries about the process and purpose of writing, and children’s development of nonfiction writing and reading. His most recent community service and research-based study project involved the structure and implementation of a summer academic-enrichment writing camp for bilingual children. Doorn’s major long-term study involves ways of expanding and enriching homeschool literacy connections for language minority children and their families.
