Education professor travels to Cuba for reading research
Socorro Herrera, professor of elementary education and director of the Center for Intercultural and Multilingual Advocacy, traveled to Havana, Cuba, from Oct. 10-15 as a member of an international team of researchers in the field of reading.
Herrera was part of a select group of delegats that will study the Cuban National Literacy Campaign and the impact on the education system of Cuba 50 years later. The trip involved faculty from around the world who have experience in the field of reading research, and participation was limited to members of the International Reading Association. The research findings will be published and presented at the 2012 International Reading Association Conference.
