Review quote

"The text has a continual thread about the importance and impact of culture that is valuable. The text provides good guidance on the role of the clinical/cooperating teacher and to build effective relationships. The author provides some useful rubrics for understanding the material. I appreciate the inclusion of information about serving children with disabilities." -Linda Welsh, Austin Community College"This text is very up to date and reader friendly. The information is appropriate for our students and for the profession. The references used...are current and on the cutting edge.
