Excellent textbook August 9, 2011
This was the required textbook for a Reading class that I took for my Master's degree in Special Education. It was one of the best textbooks that I have ever used. It included a plethora of strategies and ideas for classroom application. The textbook is more than worth its price tag. Thanks ecampus
