Review quote

Responses from the field...A strength of each chapter is the Notes for the Teacher section that introduces each set of sorts. This reminds teachers about developmental appropriateness and pacing variations based on learner needs. Clearly the gradual release of responsibility model of guided instruction is promoted and reinforced throughout the text.Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College Chapter layout is excellent. Format is designed to include anything that might be needed for the lesson, and each takes you step by step through the process being taught, allowing time for students to internalize and firm up the skills and strategies.Susan K. McCloskey, California State University, Fresnoshow more
