"I like the real world comments. This type of information is so crucial for the pre-service teacher as it [relates] to the real world of teacher."
"There is such a wonderful wealth of hands-on resources."
"A major strength of the text is that it is very comprehensive. This text covers the historical perspectives and various approaches to teaching reading that will allow elementary education majors the opportunity to reflect and make decisions about their own literacy beliefs."
"The emphasis on incorporating technology into the literacy curriculum is new and needed. The websites and ideas for using technology in the classroom are excellent."
"Most other texts with the same purpose have technological resources embedded somewhere in the verbiage, but not addressed as a separate issues. With today’s workplace requiring more and more use of computers and other technological advances, it is important to educate teachers in utilizing such resources and making them available to students."
"The mentioning of ELL learners and children with special needs allows the reader to make provisions for a diversified classroom. This, too, is a strength of the text."
"This is the most complete chapter that I have ever read on Expository Text! The concepts were well outlined for pre-service teacher reading and location of methods and strategies. The scaffolding activities were excellent."
