Professor Brouillette's research and expertise lie in two areas: (1) educational policy and school reform; (2) the use of arts-based strategies to enhance learning and deepen student understanding in K-12 schools. Her current and recent research explores use of arts-based strategies to help K-2 children who speak a language other than English at home to gain oral language skills that will provide a basis for English language literacy.
