Steve Graham, the Mary Emily Warner Professor of Education in the Division of Leadership and Innovation at ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, was inducted into the 2018 Reading Hall of Fame.

The Reading Hall of Fame consists of nationally and internationally prominent researchers who are recognized as having made extraordinary contributions to theory and research in the study of literacy acquisition. Inductees are nominated by other peers in the organization.

Graham joins one other ASU colleague: the late Professor Emerita Jeannette Veatch.

Widely recognized as a consummate literacy researcher, Graham focuses on the development of writing and reading processes, effective writing and reading instruction, and the relationships between writing, reading and learning. His research involves both typically developing students and students with special needs.

Graham has published over 300 works, including articles in prominent outlets such as Reading Research Quarterly and Reading and Writing. Among many service accomplishments, Graham has been a literacy consultant and panelist for a variety of organizations, including UNESCO, the National Institute of Health and the National Writing Project. He is former editor of four journals including the Journal of Writing Research and is the current editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology.

Notable recognitions of an impactful career include the prestigious American Educational Research Association fellow status and fellow status at the International Academy for Learning Disabilities Research.
