Includes Common Core Content

Tamara L. Jetton, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Teacher Education and Professional Development at Central Michigan University. A former public school teacher for 10 years, she is interested in three particular areas of literacy: strategic reading to improve comprehension in the academic disciplines, learning through classroom discussions, and writing processes. Her research and publications mirror these interests. Dr. Jetton has dedicated her professional career to the goal of helping teachers improve the reading comprehension of adolescents who struggle in the academic disciplines.

Her research and teaching interests are in disciplinary literacy.
