I am very involved in the history of literacy, and most of my research revolves around that area of study. The main project that I am working on now deals with a biography of Dr. Frank Laubach, a pioneer of international literacy whose “Each One Teach One” method of instruction was used as a model for UNESCO’s literacy efforts.
I am also starting some research on the impact of the Freedmen’s Bureau on the teaching of freed slaves literacy after the Civil War.
