"I have always really liked the Kauchak and Eggen text and web-based resources. This text works well because it introduces the major topics that students need to be considering as they prepare for teaching. Good overall coverage and good ideas for discussion and thinking about issues."
-Sharon Teets, Carson-Newman College
"Extremely readable. Examples are nicely integrated into the text. Theoretical ideas are introduced and explained clearly with examples to illustrate."
-Brian Yusko, Cleveland State University
"The first two chapters are fantastic, and my students always enjoy the law chapter. I would rate the book a 10."
-LueLinda Egbert, Idaho State University - Twin Falls
"I found this (Chapter 10) a clear, concise and accessible chapter, particularly concerning legal issues and ethical demands on teachers. The chapter addresses controversial issues like religion in schools, while also providing vignettes so students can see the issue in story form. Like Chapter 9, I found this chapter clear and direct."
-Deron Boyles, Georgia State University
