About the Author

Before retiring from Florida International University in Miami, Jodi Reiss served as the director of the TESOL Masters’ program. In her nine years there, she adapted, developed, and taught a variety of graduate and undergraduate TESOL courses. She particularly enjoyed teaching Methods of TESOL, Assessment for English Language Learners, and the final seminar in the Masters’ program in which her teachers directed their full attention toward analyzing their own teaching behaviors. This unique course, developed by Jodi, was highly rated by her students and a source of much material for her current books.

In her many years as an educator, Jodi taught students at every level of instruction. In her earliest experiences as a sixth grade teacher, she discovered that she most enjoyed classes and programs that encouraged curricular innovation and development. She still does.

Since her retirement, Jodi has written three books for secondary school teachers on strategies for teaching content to English language learners. She conducts teacher workshops and presentations for school districts throughout the United States and is currently working on a revision of her last book, 102 Content Strategies for English Language Learners. Although no longer in the classroom, her clearly written books and popular workshops have allowed Jodi to continue to be a source of information and inspiration to teachers of English language learners.
