Introduction

Dr. Jill Marshall earned her Ph.D. in elementary education/social studies from the University at Buffalo in 2005.  She spent 7 years teaching 6th grade social studies and language arts in the Hamburg Central School district before earning her doctoral degree and teaching at the university level.  As a professor to both undergraduate and graduate students, she strives to provide active learning experiences which enable candidates to become reflective and critical thinkers. For the last five years she has served as the Childhood Coordinator in the Curriculum & Instruction Department.

Research/Teaching Interests

Her research and scholarship focus on social studies instruction and the challenges facing elementary social studies teachers today.  At the University level we are challenged to provide our teacher candidates with the tools necessary to keep up with the demands of the school districts' schedules while still preserving classroom time for social studies instruction.  Candidates need practical sound advice on how to keep up with state-mandated school district demands in reading, writing and mathematics while still devoting classroom time to social studies instruction.  Understanding that this is a critical issue that our candidates face, she is writing a textbook that will provide teacher candidates with insight into this troubling issue and strategies with how to approach it. Technology integration within methods course instruction has become another recent research interest. Currently she is doing research with undergraduate methods students to see if the instruction they are receiving in methods courses are preparing them for technology integration within their future classrooms.
