A QUT project aiming to address boys’ underachievement in reading has received funding in the latest round of Australian Research Council (ARC) grants.
Projects investigating issues including procrastination at school, intellectual property and 3D printing, and environmental sounds analysis were among the QUT research proposals funded as part of the 2017 ARC Major Grants.
QUT had 23 projects funded across the Discovery Projects, Discovery Early Career Researcher Award, Discovery Indigenous and Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities schemes for funding commencing in 2017, totalling $8,593,000.
Dr Laura Scholes, from QUT’s Faculty of Education, was awarded $377,000 for a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award aiming to understand and address boys’ underachievement in reading.
The project will identify the connection between socio-economic background, ethnicity and geographical location, and reading outcomes.
It will assess the effects of pedagogies challenging gender stereotypes and that engage boys in reading. It is hoped the project findings will help increase access to education, employment and social participation for disadvantaged boys.
