Editorial Reviews

Lyneille Meza
"This book not only provides necessary information for those preparing to enter the teaching field, but is a great resource for teachers looking to improve their skills, as well. The examples provided are good and relevant, and the anecdotes are pertinent. The authors provide essential test taking strategies as well as tips to mentally prepare yourself… to visualize the outcome."
Debra Hurst
"The authors have created a comprehensive, upbeat and positive step by step process on how to study for the TEx ES exam—offering real life ideas that even a veteran teacher could use. Teacher candidates will especially benefit from the test taking strategies, the imagining of the ideal classroom, and even finding out what to do after passing the test."
Patrick M. Jenlink
"The authors have provided a timely and critically important guide for both the student who aspires to be a teacher and the teacher educator who knows all too well the challenges of not just being a teacher, but an ethical one. This book is richly appointed with a step-by-step instructional guide, accessible language, and detailed scenarios. It is integrally focused on the competencies essential for teachers to enter the classroom and work with diverse students against the backdrop of national and state tensions confronting today’s teachers and schools."
