Maren Aukerman
Assistant Professor, School of Education
Clayman Institute Faculty Voice and Influence Fellow, 2012-2013

Maren Aukerman’s research focuses on the relationship between classroom discourse and reading comprehension, with emphasis on children’s talk surrounding literature and their talk about nonfiction texts.  She examines the pedagogical possibilities engendered by classroom contexts in which there is ample discursive space for children to explore their own and each other’s textual sense-making.  Her article, "When reading it wrong is getting it right: Shared evaluation pedagogy among struggling fifth grade readers," won the 2009 Albert J. Harris award from the International Reading Association.  She received a PhD in Education in Language, Literacy, and Culture from the University of California, Berkeley in 2004 and has been at Stanford since 2008.
