Awesome book April 18, 2011
This is hands down the BEST teaching book I have ever read. The textbook covers all parts of a classroom from questioning techniques to classroom management. In addition, the book emphasizes what I have always believed which is all teachers are reading teachers. I will be using this textbook as a basis for staff development for my staff for the end of this year and next year. The rental textbook is also important for those who care about education reform. It points to some simple ways in which the education system can be made more effective. Ecampus provided excellent customer service, therefore, I will, without a doubt purchase books from this company in the future.
