This article presents an interview with Susan Mandel Glazer, past president of both the International Reading Association and the College Reading Association. Dr. Glazer received her doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania and her master of arts from New York University. Her most recent books are "Beyond the Looking Glass: Self-Reflection and Evaluation = More Effective Teaching" (2011), "Teaching All Children to Write" (2001), "Assessment IS Instruction: Reading Writing, Spelling & Phonics for ALL Learners" (1998a), and "Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study: A Sensible Approach" (1998b). She has presented at numerous conferences as well as professional development days in school districts in 49 states of the United States and 29 countries of the world. She has been a keynote speaker at International Reading Association, Orton Dyslexia Society, National Council of Teachers of English, and National Association for Young Children meetings, as well as at 250 local and state councils of the International Reading Association and at international conferences including the Guatemalan Reading Association, Reading Association of Ireland, Argentine Reading Association, Venezuelan Reading Association, Nassau Reading Counsil, Brunei Reading Association, Norwegian Reading Council, and Finnish Reading Association, to name a few. Her current research agenda includes metacognitive approaches to reading comprehension and the effectiveness of metacognitive approaches to literacy for the hard-to-teach. In this interview, Dr. Glazer talks about what led her to the field of literacy and the individuals who have influenced her thinking in important ways. She also discusses three main misconceptions of the reading/writing process and/or of reading/writing instruction.
