Lisa Klasen graduated from the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg with a Master degree in German Studies in Cultural Comparison, Linguistics. During her studies she focused on language use, acquisition and comparison and language and cognition. Since April 2019, she is a doctoral researcher in the GRASP-project, in which she analyses, together with Katinka Mangelschots, the Effects of Grammatical Reflection on Spelling among multilingual pupils. The overall aim of the current project GRASP is to investigate how explicit teaching of grammatical reflection enhances the spelling skills of grade 4 pupils in relation to orthographic syntactic markers that are not orally expressed, such as the capitalisation of nouns in German and the plural markers in French.
The PI of the project is Constanze Weth and Lisa Klasen focuses on the French language.
