From the Back Cover:

I greatly appreciate the pedagogical features of this book. The numerous questions and activities make planning for class sessions an easy task. The ‘Teachers Voices’ feature in each chapter helps students see how real teachers have used theory in practice. . . . This book is an eye-opener for my students, which usually leads to further exploration of the topics presented.
