Editorial Reviews

This text will be a great supporting document that will enhance the IED curriculum and reduce the time I spend preparing documents as handouts for my classes. At this point I use no less than 25 to 30 books for daily resource materials. This should significantly reduce the number of text that I will need in my room.This book is the first book that actually fits in my class. I use many, many books to teach IED and this book will save me massive time and energy in preparing for my classes. I canat wait to get this book!--Curt Reichwein, IED Master Teacher, North Penn High School, PA
