Literacy, Writing Pedagogy, Digital Composition. Dr. Young is particularly interested in how writing instruction and writing center support can better prepare students across the K-16 continuum to communicate effectively in both print and in digital environments and to succeed in college. Forthcoming publications include two articles focused on writing and reading instruction across the curriculum in relation to the changes writing instructors will need to consider as states implement the Common Core State Standards.
Dr. Young has taught writing and directed writing centers across the country, including in New York City, Oklahoma, and California. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Oklahoma, and a M.A. from the City College of New York (CUNY).
