In March 2006, Dr. Ware was selected as a recipient of SMU's prestigious Ford Fellowship in recognition of her research on the integration of technology into second language teaching and learning. Her work has addressed issues ranging from the linguistic development of middle school children participating in online mentoring partnerships to the development of cross-cultural awareness among college students involved in international collaborative projects. With the Early Career Ford Fellowship, she will continue to pursue her current research on the grammatical development of intermediate- and advanced-level English as a Second/Foreign Language students. This project currently involves pre-service and in-service teachers at SMU and English language students in Spain. She will expand the project to include several more international sites across the next two years.
