“[I] have used Woolfolk for years, originally in a Faculty of Education — recommended by a colleague a decade ago. I have retained it in an undergrad psych course, as it is thorough and interesting to students....it sparks an interest in choosing teaching as a career, and many retain the text due to the wonderful details and varied presentation.... I think it is the gold standard and I recommend this text.”
--Jeff St. Pierre, University of Western Ontario
