Choice Reviews

“Much of the art of teacher education is deciding how to design learning experiences where teachers actively engage with and reflect upon the content being shared. This book offers a rare glimpse into successful practices that fellow teacher educators use when teaching or designing professional learning opportunities. Readers will be eager to immediately implement several practices from the book.”

—Denise N. Morgan, PhD, Department of Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum Studies, Kent State University

“Aspiring teachers deserve high-quality instruction. When future teachers learn in ways that are consistent with best practices and research, they are more likely to engage their students in this type of learning. This book is filled with practical and authentic ideas for engaging the next generation of teachers in activities and lessons that build their instructional repertoires. Teacher educators will find this book useful for helping educators find their voice as they develop their art of teaching.”

—Douglas Fisher, PhD, Department of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University

“This is an excellent text for master's-level courses such as 'Organization and Supervision of Reading Programs.' Each chapter provides the latest pedagogical and content literacy knowledge. The detailed assignments in the book scaffold practitioners to demonstrate their understandings in class and to conduct workshops with teachers at their schools. This book serves as a natural bridge to becoming a literacy coach.”
