Dr. Martin teaches undergraduate and graduate course in elementary education and research. My personal experiences frame the three inter-related areas of my research agenda: content area literacy, program evaluation, and technology in the classroom.


Dr. Martin’s research agenda focuses on the areas of content area literacy, program evaluation, and the use of technology in education. Her recent efforts to broaden her research internationally have included attending international conferences and editing a book that studied education in China. These themes overlap in most of her publications. Her role on two evaluation teams and future work as a consultant for evaluating grants has afforded her the opportunity to examine the impact of programs and professional development on teachers and students.


Dr. Martin teaches EDTE 713 Action Research Capstone; EDTE 591 Seminar on Teaching; and EDTE 201 Trends in Teaching and Learning.
