Associate Professor, Teacher Education
L. Eva, Ph.D. ,
Associate Professor of Education. Areas of emphasis: metacognition, language
arts, the psychology of reading, teacher education, mindfulness-based
Dr. Eva received her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of
Washington. With a background in language arts and psychology, her research
interests have centered on cognition, affect, and the psychology of reading.
She has published articles in top journals (e.g., the Journal of Educational Psychology, Discourse Processes, and the Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy) in her field that feature “think aloud”
methods for reading poetry—all of which examine the genre-specific strategies
that high school and college students can use to better understand poetry.
Dr. Eva is also currently conducting a self-study that examines cutting-edge
practice in teacher education as she and her colleague, Dr. Bridget Walker,
have partnered in revising and improving a foundational course in teaching and
learning in the MIT Program. The study examines the effectiveness of
co-teaching as a model, along with curricular elements to better integrate
general education and special education practices for both general and special
education pre-service educators.
In the creative realm, Dr. Eva has contributed to a book featuring poems that
inspire teachers (Teaching with Fire:
Poetry That Sustains the Courage to Teach), and she has also recently
published an article called “Take two poems and call me in the morning (or why
teachers need poetry)” in Encounter:
Education for Meaning and Social Justice.
