Kathy Schuh will write a book documenting a synthesis of a 10-year research strand in which she has studied a specific learning process—student knowledge linking—of upper-elementary students. Her research, including qualitative data from 8 classrooms, has focused on how fifth- and sixth-grade students integrate what they are learning in their classrooms with what they already know. A number of Schuh’s published articles will provide the foundation for many of the book chapters. The project will result in a much needed concrete description of this specific learning process at a foundational and practical level.
