Perfect August 7, 2011
This textbook is very informative. It will be a very useful resource for me to mainstream any child. The textbook discussed many types of students you might need to include in your class. It gave helpful strategies, multiple websites and great game ideas to include all learners into the regular classroom. Textbook arrived within days after ordering. Very clean book no marks. And it's what I needed.
