"I teach at two schools with very different populations and this book works great at both. I used a lesson during an observation and received positive comments regarding the level of engagement and rigor. Many lessons also provide suggested H.O.T. topics and ideas for adding classroom instruments!" Rating: 5 Stars
"One of the things I like about this book is that I can open it & immediately use ideas. I don't have to study the entire book & digest it & think about it for a while before I can use the material in it." Rating: 5 Stars
