A team funded by the Institute of Education Sciences is building graphic literacy skills of middle school students with visual impairments. By allowing students with visual impairments to customize their work environment, and access graphics in their preferred literacy medium, they are better positioned to succeed in algebra. These students will then have a solid foundation to persist in STEM fields. Dr. Rosenblum directs this three-year, $1.4 million project, in collaboration with Dr. Beal of the University of Florida.
