[Dr. Amanda Goodwin]

Dr. Amanda Goodwin
Assistant Professor in Language, Literacy, and Culture
Vanderbilt University, Peabody College


Amanda P. Goodwin is an Assistant Professor in Language, Literacy, and Culture at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College. Dr. Goodwin is interested in how aspects of word knowledge, such as knowledge and awareness of morphemic units like roots and affixes, support the increased reading demands that readers face when reading content specific texts. Recent projects include exploring how middle school students build lexical representations for morphologically complex words like thermosphere and financially. Her team is also examining morphological problem solving strategies that students, including English Learners, use to figure out unknown words. Her work aims to improve understanding of how morphological awareness impacts reading achievement and ultimately lead to better design of morphological interventions and improved student literacy.
