Tony Manzo is a very visible and respected researcher and scholar in education. Sometimes spoken of as "the person who discovered the 'cure' for comprehension deficits," Manzo pioneered the concepts of "mental modeling" and "reciprocal teaching"- two of the most generative and enduring ideas in pedagogy in the 20th century. He has written several books and many juried articles. Tony has also created several teacher-friendly instruments to aid in the assessment of thinking, reader styles, and social-emotional development. In 1993 he was granted the International Reading Association's Wm. S. Gray Citation of Merit, its highest award for lifetime creative research and problem-solving in the field.
Ula Manzo is a seasoned professor and public school administrator. She is author/creator of Motor Imaging, one of the most robust means devised for improving vocabulary. She is also co-author of several textbooks, juried articles, and a pioneering informal reading (thinking) inventory.
