The authors turn technical and theoretical concepts into practical applications in an easy-to-understand style. A must-read for every student who wants to become a teacher and every first-year teacher in the field.”

The opportunities for reflection make this an excellent resource and self-evaluation tool for educators as well as administrators. The concise presentation of material also makes it a useful and realistic read for busy educators.”
“One of the richest books I have ever read for beginning teachers. Even veteran teachers will get a lot out of it. I really wish I had a book like this when I was a student teacher.”
“This book should be read three times: as course material for student teachers, during the first year of teaching, and again in the third year of teaching when experience will allow you to consider more perspectives as you form your own answers to the questions addressed in the book.”
