Editorial Reviews

Review

“I LOVE the integration of theory and practice!” (Brigid Beaubien)

“It has a strong research focus while it simultaneously speaks to the heart and beliefs of preservice and inservice teachers. This ability to simultaneously engage readers intellectually and emotionally sets this text apart from others.” (Amanda Smith)

“…a very strong book with an amazing ability to pull together vast amounts of information in concise and precise ways and make it readable and practical for preservice teachers.” (Janna Jackson-Kellinger)
