Reviews

"The pedagogical features are outstanding. Each one helps the reader understand the content and make connections to authentic teaching situations. The ideas are practical and helpful because they can be easily implemented in the classroom." -- DeAnna M. Laverick
"Language Arts: Integrating Skills for Classroom Teaching supports teachers of language arts by providing a wealth of valuable resources, including sample lesson plans, instructional materials, recommendations for quality children's literature, detailed descriptions of teaching strategies, and suggestions for meeting the needs of English language learners. The vignettes capture an authentic insider's view on chapter topics; and together with the many resources, forge a connection between the theoretical and research base and the practical application of concepts." -- DeAnna M. Laverick
"[The instructors' resources] are all nice features. As an instructor, having access to sample test questions, particularily ones that are similar to what students will experience on the PRAXIS tests are essential." -- Sara Runge-Pulte, Ed.D.
"I really love this textbook. It has great coverage, is reader friendly, and has a great approach to integration." -- Jeff L. Whittingham

"Instructor's resources were helpful. The book is up-to-date and comprehensive." -- Karren Timmermans
The book is excellent and the difference in the price of this book and the text I have been using is about 50% less. I have known of Donoghue's writing of Language Arts Texts for a number of years and find that she is always up-to-date on this subject area. Her current book is excellent! -- C. Glennon Rowell, Professor of Language Arts and Former Dean of Education
