Patricia Antonacci is a Professor Emeritus of Education at Iona College. Antonacci entered the teaching profession as a classroom teacher for the middle and elementary grades and continued as a literacy specialist. Her long career in public schools brought her a range of experiences as a teacher at all grade levels including a number of years working in diverse classroom settings. As a reading specialist for K through 12, she assisted teachers in integrating literacy instruction in content areas. Working in a large urban district afforded her rich experiences teaching striving readers and English language learners. Antonacci has taught courses at Fordham University and Iona College including the following: reading in the content areas for middle and secondary grades, foundations of literacy, literacy across the curriculum, action research, as well as mentoring doctoral students in conducting research in literacy education.

“The structure around the essential elements of literary means that I could use this book as a supplement for almost any text...This is exactly the kind of material we try to get into the hands of the students now while they have the time to spend on learning the strategies.” (Linda K. Allen)
“(The book’s) three greatest strengths are the inclusion of differentiate instruction for the ELL students, children’s literature, and integration of media/technology.”
