Author Bios:

Margaret Mooneyís teaching, writing, and publishing career began in New Zealand.  For two decades she divided her time between New Zealand and the United States. Margaret encourages teachers to view all children as worthy, not needy, emphasizing education as a process of enhancement and not one of compensation. She promotes guided reading as an instructional approach in which children practice, apply, and extend skills and strategies in order to understand text on the first reading. Margaret has written the Books for Young Learners Teacher Resource, Text Forms and Features: A Resource for Intentional Teaching, Reading To, With, and By Children, and she collaborated with Terry Young and contributing authors on Caught in the Spell of Writing and Reading: Grade 3 and Beyond. In 1998, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Margaret as an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to education, particularly the teaching of reading.
