Research Interests

Lindsey's research interests involve using qualitative methods and sociocultural perspectives to explore how young learners construct meaning in various instructional settings.

Lindsey Moses is currently working on data analysis of two yearlong, formative studies examining reading instruction in first grade. Lindsey is conducting a qualitative comparative analysis of the two first-grade classrooms. The reading interventions included a focus on comprehension strategies, literature discussion groups, literal vs. interpretive responses, and developing a love of reading. The first study takes place in a diverse, first-grade setting where Lindsey examines the influences of first and second language in additional to the instructional methodology. The second study takes place in a classroom with all monolingual students. 

As an early literacy researcher, Linsey is particularly interested in ways young children make sense with text. She is working with a team to examine the ways 8 first graders (4 bilingual, 4 monolingual- wide range of reading proficiency levels) utilized design features in multimodal texts to assist in meaning construction. 

Guiding research questions:

  • What impact does an instructional intervention have on developing a positive view of reading in first grade?
  • What semiotic resources do first graders utilize when making meaning with contemporary picturebooks?
