In celebration of her 50th anniversary from earning her doctorate in reading from the Wayne State University College of Education, Yetta M. Goodman, the Regents Professor at the University of Arizona College of Education, returns home for a special conversation with faculty, students, alumni, and the community. She will paint a portrait of how what we know about literacy learning and teaching was influenced by the work of faculty and students in the college. 

Goodman 
 along with other colleagues and under the direction of Professor Kenneth Goodman  established the Miscue Research Center, which has influenced the way teachers support literacy learning with their students. Through Kidwatching, she will discuss the role of miscues in understanding how children and youth learn to read and write.
