Author Biography

Gail E. Tompkins, late, was Professor Emerita at California State University, Fresno. Before her passing, she worked with teachers in their kindergarten through eighth-grade classrooms and led staff-development programs on reading and writing. Dr. Tompkins was inducted into the California Reading Association’s Reading Hall of Fame in recognition of her accomplishments in the field of reading, and received the prestigious Provost’s Award for Excellence in Teaching at California State University, Fresno. Dr. Tompkins was the author of six other books published by Pearson: Language Arts: Patterns of Practice, Language Arts Essentials, Teaching Writing: Balancing Process and Product, 50 Literacy Strategies, and two grade-specific versions of this text: Literacy for the 21st Century: A Balanced Approach (K-8) and Literacy in the Middle Grades: Teaching Reading and Writing to Fourth Through Eighth Graders. During the past three decades, Dr. Tompkins also worked with kindergarten through college-level writing teachers at National Writing Project sites in California and Oklahoma.

Emily Rodgers is a professor of reading and early literacy in the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University.
