A bit dated.

One of the best teaching books I've read so far. It was actually helpful and you can tell the authors have actually been in a classroom. I also felt like what I bring to the classroom was respected. I've had education/English grad textbooks that actually defined the word "homework" for me. The authors of this text treat the reader as a professional looking to hone skills. Worth the money.

This is quite possibly the best resource book for English teachers. I refer to it often. It is a must have for new ideas, great unit plans, and how to differentiate instruction.

Good for English teachers. It has a lot of techniques, terminology, and tricks to keep things interesting and effective.
