this book was required for a college class, not really an easy read.

I have used the 8th and now the 9th edition of Heward's textbook in classes for alternative certification for public school teachers - both general and special education. The references to CEC are especially helpful for prospective new teachers to become familiar with national advocacy for students with disabilities and students in G&T programs. Highly recommended for history, pedagogy, exposition of personal experiences, real world professional situations, and teaching strategies. Includes interesting and provocative projects throughout. Highly recommended.

We are using the text in our class and I find it very interesting and informative. The text is definitely college level reading but it isn't bad for a textbook. There are a lot of pictures and interesting bylines inserted and there is a glossary and index that are helpful. For someone who has begun working with exceptional children I have found it a good book to use a reference. The lab series included helps with has pre and post tests that help review the information. The homework section doesn't help me with reviewing what I have read.
