Lynne Zummo Co-I on Spencer Foundation Award

The Spencer Foundation has awarded $49,995 for the “Let’s Talk about Election 2020”: Mapping Quantitative Civic Literacies in Youth Video Composition in an Online Digital Network project. Lynne Zummo will be a Co-I on the project, which runs from June 2021-May 2022, and examines youths' quantitative reasoning when viewing the social-political world, specifically through the lens of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.   

Youth, Politics, Reasoning, and Videos

This study will generate new knowledge about how youth use quantitative reasoning to participate in the civic world. This project studies quantitative civic literacies - how youth use quantitative forms of reasoning as they “read” the social-political world and “inscribe” their own participation through civic engagement via videos created during the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
