Research interests: Melissa's research interests are to explore inquiry-based curriculum development at the secondary level and work with districts, teachers, students, and policy-makers to implement such curriculum. She is interested in the programs and curricula that are currently being developed, how technology can be integrated into such curricula, and researching the effectiveness of various types of inquiry-based instruction in differing student populations. Melissa plans to be involved in future development of inquiry-based instruction, synthesizing both individualized and collaborative learning into a cohesive whole.
