Donna Hooker Topping has spent more than 30 years collaborating with Roberta McManus her coauthor on Stuck in the Middle. They have developed strategies that help students learn content through better teaching. "Better teaching, to us, is the result of a teacher's conscious effort to embed literacy processes into content-area instruction. Resulting lessons lead students through the very strategic moves in reading and writing that lead to fuller comprehension of the content, strategies that will prepare them for lifelong learning." Donna is Professor of Literacy Education at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. She is a former first-grade teacher, reading specialist, reading supervisor, language arts supervisor, and literacy consultant. She and Roberta are also coauthors of the Heinemann title Real Reading, Real Writing and Donna also coauthored the Heinemann book Getting Grammar with Sandra Josephs Hoffman.
