Product description

Review

Gay Ivey ― James Madison University

This is a highly practical and useable book for a range of teachers and teacher candidates.  Across the book, what I find most helpful are the descriptions of actual lessons.  Unlike most content area methods books on the market, this book seems to include real examples.  You get the feeling that the authors spend much time in high school classrooms and have a good feel of what’s currently happening and what works.  Especially valuable are examples of the strategies across different subject areas. 

 

Margot Kinberg, National University

The various topics are applied to many different content areas, so that nearly every teacher is likely to find a strategy that he or she can use.   Each chapter contains helpful graphics, useful concrete examples, and content-based strategies for implementing the various strategies in the classroom.  The book is very practical, easy to read, and well organized.  Information is easy to find and the busy practicing or pre-service teacher would no doubt find it to be a handy reference.

 

Karen Ford, Ball State University

The information is theoretically quite sound.  It provides the students with a wealth of strategies to facilitate comprehension.
