"A stimulating four-part volume that breaks new ground regarding the attributes of strategies, assessment techniques, and strategy instruction...Several features are desired of edited books, particularly those that deal with both learning and instruction and that emerge from a conference, as this one does. Two of these features are that the discussion of theory and practice is balanced and that the authors are experts in their fields. This book meets these criteria admirably."
