About the Author

Nancy Frey's latest book with Heinemann is Background Knowledge, coauthored with Douglas Fisher. It continues their exploration of the connection between language and learning. Their previous two Heinemann titles, Word Wise & Content Rich, Grades 7 - 12 and Learning Words Inside & Out, Grades 1 - 6, have helped teachers nationwide implement a five-part framework for building students' vocabulary. With word learning so important to comprehension, Background Knowledge takes the next step toward deeper understanding.
