About the Authors

“The structure around the essential elements of literary means that I could use this book as a supplement for almost any text…This is exactly the kind of material we try to get into the hands of the students now while they have the time to spend on learning the strategies.”

Linda K. Allen
Texas Tech University

“(The book’s) three greatest strengths are the inclusion of differentiate instruction for the ELL students, children’s literature, and integration of media/technology.”

Esther Berkowitz
St. Joseph’s College

“Some of the book’s strengths include the appearance of a user-friendly format, instructional strategies across the language arts areas, affordable pricing for the teaching candidates and (it could be) a resource to keep for future reference.”
