"The idea of pruning the language arts down to the essentials is brilliant, as most language arts textbooks these days are getting too cumbersome."
Bonnie Armbruster, University of Illinois
"I like the organization. I like how it moves from authentic, real classroom experiences to the meat on why teaching is important and why assessment should play a role in the teaching of skills. I would not rearrange anything."
Debra Price, Sam Houston State University
"I think the author is on the right track. Areas are covered in an approach that works for presenting a view of the essentials. For preservice teachers, this would make an appropriate book for a site-based language arts course where students spend less time in class and more in practicum experience in real elementary classrooms."
Cindy Wilson, Southwest Missouri State University
