"The Visions curriculum has been a lifesaver for my students and myself. I am continually amazed at what second language learners are capable of when assisted by a well-written, high interest text and its components. I never dreamed I could take a group of students to such levels, but it really happens through Visions." -April Roberts, Franklin County Middle School, GA
"I think it is a great way to teach literature and content reading. I find the series exciting to use." -Gary Smucker, T.C. Williams High School, VA
"Visions is a proactive series that has embraced the necessity for incorporating reading strategies into the ESL curriculum. I appreciate the overall effectiveness and inclusion of material aligned to state standards and reading strategies." -Sandy Wagner, Fort Lauderdale High School, FL
"My students love the art in this book. They enjoy talking about these pictures." -Svetlana Mamedova, Secondary BOC, WA
