Dr. Perry Klein works in the area of cognition and instruction, teaching courses on the psychology of learning, teaching and intervention for diverse students, including students with exceptionalities.

Dr. Klein’s research focuses on the psychology of writing instruction. The questions that I investigate include: How can students use writing as a tool for learning about content area subjects? How can we teach writing effectively? How can we support and intervene with struggling writers and prevent writing difficulties?
