Crosson holds a doctorate in education in language and literacy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education where her dissertation was funded by an Adolescent Literacy Fellowship from the National Academy Education. Her research focuses on classroom-based interventions to support the academic language development of elementary and middle school students in urban schools, with special attention to academic vocabulary, discussion quality and argument writing. In particular, she focuses on the language and literacy development of English language learners. Crosson is currently studying how students’ source language resources can be leveraged to promote academic language and literacy in English.
