Tell us a little about yourself. Presently, I am employed as a high school librarian in suburban St. Louis. I am also an adjunct college instructor teaching English courses.
What was your motivation behind this project? My motivation for writing this book stems from a thirty-year career of teaching reading and writing at all levels. I want to help others beyond the classroom and hope that this book will assist many students in becoming better readers and writers.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Understanding patterns in text helps students in determining text arrangement. As students read, they form a mental awareness of text structure, a skill that bridges reading and writing. By recognizing reading patterns, students learn how to recreate text in outlining. My book introduces each reading pattern with suggestions for developing good reading techniques and instructions for creating accurate graphic organizers and outlines.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My inspiration for this book comes from my college professor, Dr. Shirley Thomas, (John Brown University). She taught me how to write by introducing patterns. Later, in my teaching career, I became interested in teaching students how to read by using the same patterns. When I became a reading specialist, I realized the importance of pattern recognition in text awareness and began to publish articles on metacognition. My book represents my own thirty- year quest exploring how students should read to write.
