Sandra Martin-Chang is a reading researcher in the Education Department at Concordia University. She received her Masters (Psychology) from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland and her PhD (Psychology) from the McMaster University, Canada. Her main areas of research focus on understanding: 1) the strengths and weaknesses of reading words in different contexts (stories and lists), 2) the impact of the family environment on literacy development (storybook reading, parent reading related knowledge, homeschooling, print exposure), and (3) the role of teacher training on student achievement.
