"Bev Johns answers questions that all teachers have had. I especially like her personal examples and the “3x5” summaries in each chapter."
“This excellent reference is ideal for both new and veteran teachers, and is an easy and enjoyable read.”
“All general education teachers should have this book in their personal libraries!”
"This is an outstanding, comprehensive and reader friendly book: a must have for all educators at all levels. Dr. Johns has written a much needed text that is easy to read as well as understand. It should definitely be on your shelf as a resource to meet the diverse needs of all students."
