A great book for teachers who are co-teaching and need real life examples on how to go about this process. It also encourages differentiation for any teacher in any subject. There are a lot of strategies that have been known to work.

I decided to buy this book off Amazon because my school overprices their textbooks and they didn't have it in stock when I went to buy books. I finally had enough of their bs. It came super fast. I bought a new book and it was in perfect condition. I will use Amazon again because of how easy it is and because it came on time.
