She continues to teach the approach used in the textbook in public schools to field test new lessons and demonstrate lessons for undergraduates and teachers. She has conducted research for 25 years on how undergraduates learn the approach, how expert teachers use the approach, and how children learn and respond to lessons based on the approach.
