Roberta McManus

Roberta McManus has spent more than 30 years collaborating with Donna Hooker Topping, 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.” Rboerta is a middle school science teacher in the Oxford-Area School District in Pennsylvania, where she infuses science with reading and writing strategies. She is also a popular workshop presenter on the topic of bringing literacy processes into the content areas. She and Donna are also coauthors of the Heinemann title Real Reading, Real Writing.
