*Call for Nominations*

*P. Karen Murphy, Chair*

Deadline: February 4, 2006

Nominations are open for the 2006 Sylvia Scribner Award of Division C of the
American Educational Research Association. The award recognizes a program of
work that has significantly influenced thinking and research in the field of
learning and instruction. In particular, the annual award is designed to
honor current research (i.e., within the last ten years) that represents a
significant advancement in our understanding of learning and instruction.
The recognized work may include but is not limited to research articles,
paper series, monographs, book chapters, and/or books. This includes
collaborative teams as well as individuals.

The award is named in honor of the late Sylvia Scribner. Professor
Scribner's work reflects a wide range of concerns within the field of
cognition, particularly learning and instruction. Her research focused on
the relationship between cognition and culture. Her work involved innovative
mixing of methods, including experimental simulations of everyday cognitive
tasks and ethnographic fieldwork. Her work cut across disciplinary
boundaries, addressed multiple sites for learning and development, and
included older and younger learners.

The nominator should send the following:

(1) The complete bibliographic citation of a single publication designated
by the nominator as illustrative of the nominee's larger research program
and contribution. The publication date of the designated work should be
within the last decade (i.e. with a publication date of 1995 or later).

The nominator also should submit a copy of the representative publication.
If the publication is a book or monograph, the nominator should indicate
which portion of it (approximately 25 pages) should be reproduced for
dissemination to the award committee. An electronic version of the
representative publication is preferred.

(2) Complete bibliographic citations of up to five additional relevant
publications of the nominee (There are no publication date restrictions for
these citations).

"Far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though
checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither
enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that
knows not victory, nor defeat." -- Theodore Roosevelt
