This a basic and complete text for helping student teachers, or even new teachers, teach reading. I'm giving this a four-star rating because In the electronic format I find the use of the particular colors very distracting and hard to read.
The book was received in a timely manner. It was marked "used good" but it was not what I would define as good. The book had water damage and it was clearly worn. It looked as if it had been in the bottom of a book bag for a while. All the pages, however, were in tact and the book was quite cheap.
I am a college student and usually I sell my textbooks the day the semester ends however this one is a keeper. There are so many tools and resources in this textbook. It is the most beneficial book I have ever read and it will be a great resource when I have my own classroom.
