From reviews of the book:

 

“I do not think anyone can write to an undergraduate like Jeanne Ormrod can.”

 

         —Deborah Switzer, Clemson University

 

“Many similar textbooks suffer from the "everything, including the kitchen sink" problem. This is a mostly-lean and focused text. . . . The extensive examples help with clarity. . . . [And I] appreciate how a chapter starts with theory and research, and ends with lots and lots of useful strategies. This book really matches its subtitle [“Big Ideas to Guide Effective Teaching”].   I . . . greatly value the Cultural Considerations box in each chapter. . . [and] plan to make time to come back and study them again, to improve both how I teach and what I teach my students about learner differences.”

 

          —Kym Buchanan, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point

 

 

“I see students in my class who are not able to do well in other courses . . . get high grades in this course partly due to the textbook. This text is written in a . . . way for students to get the main points of the material and connect them with real-life examples. In this way, they are able to quickly become successful at understanding the material in a practical and applicable way.  This text . . . is [also]a good study tool to use when preparing for licensure exams.”

 

         —Kimberlee Taylor, Utah State University
