Introducing the Learning Sciences Calderón Center
Learning Sciences International is pleased to announce our new partnership with one of the most highly respected authorities on English-language learner (ELL) education, Dr. Margarita Calderón. With English-language learners now representing the fastest-growing segment of the public school population in the United States, Dr. Calderón’s significant contributions to research and practice, along with her experience implementing instructional strategies, have helped schools throughout the country raise student achievement. The new Learning Sciences Calderón Center is dedicated to furthering our shared mission to increase achievement for all students through research-based best practices in pedagogy.
Dr. Calderón, a Senior Research Scientist and Professor Emerita at Johns Hopkins University, has conducted remarkable research—most recently a project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York to help K-12 educators in New York City improve the academic performance of English-language learners.
