    What colleagues are saying...

    “The Pierangelo/Giuliani text takes the practitioner’s approach and utilizes language that may be better understood by the teacher in the field.”
    –Dr. Maribeth Montgomery Kasik, Governors State University

    “The writing style is lucid and readable. The subtopics in each chapter are well-sequenced, and each subtopic flows into the next lending a sense of coherence to the entire text.
    –Dr. Shelia Saravanabhavan, Virginia State University

    “The material presented in Chapter 5 gives a detailed review of many assessments that a teacher might use. These are presented in such a way that the novice teacher would get a quick overview of the many assessments available to him/her in a single reading.”
    –Dale E. Smith, Alvernia College
