Jo Worthy, a former elementary and middle school teacher, is in the language and literacy program area. She teaches classes focusing on literacy development, pedagogy, and research in the teacher preparation and graduate programs. Her major research and teaching interests are reading interests and preferences, alternatives to ability grouping, bilingual education, and students who find school challenging. I read and write a little bit of Spanish, and I speak a little less.
