With its hallmark practicality, the text uses case studies, sample lessons, practice opportunities, and activities to equip future teachers with dozens of examples of best practices, current research findings, and proven teaching strategies. This is truly one of the most comprehensive texts on the market today, made even better in this latest edition.show more
