I didn't count reading this last semester, but I'm counting it now since I basically finished reading this thing chapter by chapter.

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 one of the few books I've bought for college that has actually been really helpful. It's a really long book, but there are so many helpful suggestions for teachers! This is definitely one book that I will be turning to on a regular basis when I am a teacher.

*Has a 4.5 star rating

This textbok has some great ideas for teaching literature, but it falls short in the vocabulary department. Also, some of the ideas for incorporating drama are very corny...

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.
