Ronald L. Cramer is the grandpa of Max, a 4-year-old wizard of language
and love. He is also the servant of Blackie, a highly intelligent and loving
Jack Russell. Professor Cramer says his greatest accomplishment is that his
children, Amy, Jen, and Ben, are voracious readers and competent writers.
He takes major credit for this, but concedes, albeit reluctantly, that his
former wife, Barbara, deserves a modicum of credit as well. In his spare
time, Professor Cramer teaches courses in the Reading and Language Arts
Department at Oakland University under the close supervision of Joan,
Linda, and Sig.
He is· also Distinguished Professor of Education at Oakland University in the
Department of Reading and Language Arts, where he directs the Reading
Clinic and teaches courses in reading, writing, and language arts. In 2004
he was the recipient of the International Reading Association's Outstanding
Teacher Educator In Reading Award.
