Reviewers Are Raving
The tables, figures and textboxes are excellent. Each chapter presented a unique set of these with relevant information throughout. I liked the 'voices from the field.'
Judith O'Loughlin, New Jersey City University
I think the book is excellent for both pre-service and in-service teachers. I like the simplicity and yet depth of how the topics are presented. Besides that, the topics are comprehensive for ESL instruction.
Laura Sujo de Montes, Northern Arizona University
I think the authors did an excellent job in including so many learning aids that may help the reader understand the myriad of terms, concepts, theories, instructional models, etc.
