"The book is extensive and generally complete."
"Offers alternative approaches for understanding our most challenging students. The tremendous research-based detail is a major strength, and the text encourages teachers to take proactive action, rather than just be reactive."
“The author provides tons of up-to-date research, but explains what that means for teachers and the classroom environment. The numerous strategies are explained in easy-to-implement ways, and the scenarios provide a model of interaction between teachers and students.”
"Helps teachers create a more positive climate in the classroom."
"Thoroughly researched and written in a user-friendly way without compromising the integrity of the information. As an experienced teacher, I found the information interesting and was able to relate it to actual events in my classroom."
"The book offers a comprehensive look at the classroom environment, the children who inhabit the classrooms, and concrete strategies for teachers to use to ensure the success of all students. A very hands-on book with useable information for a diverse group of learners."
"Before teachers can instill a desire to learn in their students, teachers and students must uncover the real issues and face them head on. This book contains the information, research, and strategies to do just that. Teachers can easily select the strategies best suited to their circumstances and adjust them for an even better fit."
"I can't think of one teacher who would not find this book a favorite resource. I have countless testimonials from teachers in my graduate classes who have used ideas from Kay Burke in their most frustrating or hopeless situations. They were amazed at the way they turned relationships with students and entire classes around."
