As a tenth-grade special educator, I found the activities and projects to be engaging, thought-provoking and motivating. Global History, as World History is called in New York State, remains one of the most difficult subject areas that students must master. Having a resource such as this will allow students an opportunity to connect to the text. -- Lia Council, mainstream skills/self-contained special education teacher, Riverside High School, Yonkers, New York
This is perfect for my tenth grade class. This book has included every tool a teacher needs in order to teach a successful lesson. These activities and projects include all learning styles and all ability levels. And the handouts and rubrics are fantastic! This is the way to motivate students and definitely the best way to teach. -- Melba Sands, special education/integrated coteacher, Riverside High School, Yonkers, New York
I didn't realize that there were so many psychology activities and ideas that I've not used before! So I think that these ideas are fresh and useful. I liked the introduction, especially the reminder for the possible need to differentiate the activities for students with IEP's. I also found the suggestions for non-fictional books to be a strength. A splendid work! -- Hugh Canterbury, college board workshop consultant for AP psychology, Atlanta, Georgia
Having taught all three levels of instruction, regular, gifted, and special education, I can attest that all of the activities and projects included in this book are beneficial and easily implemented for all three levels of instruction. Each activity presented is designed to include all students in the classroom, recreating the moment that all teachers love: the teachable moment. -- Bobie Rodriguez, special education and honors world history teacher, Woodstock High School, Woodstock, Georgia
