"The tone of the text is easy going and relaxed, a welcome break from over-flowery 'academic' language for students ready to enter the 'real world' of the classroom. By using the 'exploratory breaks,' new teachers should find it simple to further the given lesson plans and work them into useful plans for their own classrooms." -- Elise Geither
"Very relevant to the real-life teaching situations that first year teachers often encounter. Citations for teacher resources are included as the reader moves along; I found them excellent for immediate references for teachers who want to read more on the topics. The 'Exploratory Breaks' are also easy to find and are helpful and formatted to be teacher-friendly." -- Joanne Ho
"Offers much background information and many teaching suggestions for those who are just beginning to understand how to help ELLs. Farrell invites interaction by providing numerous 'exploratory breaks' within the book to help readers further internalize what they have just read by talking or writing about it." -- The Reading Teacher, March 2007
"A valuable starting point for new teachers to get acquainted with fundamental facets of English language teaching." -- The Asian EFL Journal, June 2008, Vol. 10(2)
