What readers have to say
My students keep this text. This book is captivating to students, and they report that it encourages them to think from various perspectives. It contains helpful text lists, assessments and reproducible materials.
Angela J. Cox, Georgetown College
There are so many strategies available, the ones listed in the book are some of the major and successful strategies. The Instructional Focus helps to narrow down strategies to what the students want to build their lessons about. Grade Level Designation is very useful, allowing students to make sure they are using appropriate grade-level strategies.
Deborah A. H. Williams, Wayne State University
The strategies are the essential ones I use in my course. English Language Learner features are a critical component because few of my students have had any interaction with English learners and need significant help understanding second language literacy.
Charlotte L. Pass, SUNY Cortland
