Call for Nominations

Gale M. Sinatra, Chair

Helen Patrick, Co-Chair

Deadline: January 5, 2009

Nominations are open for the 2009 Sylvia Scribner Award of Division C
of the American Educational Research Association. The award
recognizes a program of work by a Division C member 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.
Professor Scribner's research also 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 1999 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 no more than 5 additional
relevant publications of the nominee (There are no publication date
restrictions for these citations).
