3rd Year, BSc in Psychology

Dalhousie University

Sarah is a third-year student completing a BSc in Psychology at Dalhousie University. She is currently completing an Independent Research Project under the supervision of Drs. Hélène Deacon and Klaudia Krenca, regarding digital literacy and COVID-19 mandated homeschooling. More specifically, her research compares reading strategies used by parents with children partaking in mandatory homeschooling, in-person schooling, and voluntary homeschooling. She hopes that this research might shine a light on the reading strategies happening at home in the COVID-19 pandemic, and better help families accommodate the many learning changes they are facing.
