This book is such a good resource for ESL teachers! It is expensive, but I bought it anyway because I knew I would want to keep it on my bookshelf (I could have read it online for a class I was taking). I am an experienced teacher, but there is always room for improvement, and this book is a wonderful source of ideas.

I have been teaching a course on Ell Assessment. This book was the one I used as a basic text. My students have found it both challenging and informative. I have enjoyed and relished the book and I recommend it very highly. I also like the care given to every chapter. Every one starts with an analogy to a bridge.

Although this book was written specifically for ELL teachers, the information is useful for any teacher. The topics covered range from the purposes of assessments, to differences among assessments, tests, and evaluations, to using rubrics and making your own. The information is straightforward and easily applied to any classroom situation. The important aspects of each content area are covered with useful suggestions on application. There are many tables which clearly summarize the information in the texts. Appendicies at the end of each chapter may be used for many purposes - from classroom to Instructional strategist levels. From one point of view, ALL our students are learning the English language, this book really helps.

Don't get me wrong, this book has some good information, especially for beginning teachers. The content is straightforward and has lots of useful examples. Great to use in conjunction with WIDA. But I'm gonna have to ding Gottlieb a star for her writing style. I've read a number of academic texts, and this has got to be one of the driest I've ever read. It's the Dead Sea of jargon. Please Gottlieb, sprinkle in some ol' fashioned Germanic words here and there to keep your readers awake.

I feel like when I rate a product and / or a seller as excellent, I am confused as to why I must submit a comment, so I just say lots of things like this. There's nothing more to say, this product was as expected, I did not contact the seller, and everything arrived right on time. This is all I have to say. This is all I have to say. This is all I have to say. This is all I have to say.

I bought this for a class, and I have found usage for this book outside of it. There are many examples of lesson plans within it which are useful for any teacher who not only teaches CLD students, but also those who want to make their lessons more inclusive. Plus it is very inexpensive!

It was very good textbook required for my course. Easy to locate information, easy to read and the information was not dated.
