Review:

"[…] This is an excellent textbook in its comprehensiveness, depth of coverage, and realistic classroom applications. This is definitely one of the best textbooks currently available in the field."

-Rolando A. Santos, California State University, Los Angeles

 

“[…] The features included allow for students to achieve an understanding and application of principles […] Also, student resources are excellent. Students will be able to view the instructor as a guide, rather than one who must interpret the information because of the readability level and writing style used by the author.”

-Sharon Cordell, Roane State Community College

 

“We chose Ormrod because of its readability and emphasis on application in real classrooms, as well as the author’s efforts to actively engage the reader through suggested reflections and activities.”

-Pamela Kidder-Ashley, Ph.D., Appalachian State University

 

“Many (other) characteristics set Ormrod’s book apart from its competitors and contribute to its excellence: The writing style is lively. […] There are plentiful examples from actual teaching experiences that are good illustrations of their linked constructs. […]Ormrod understands that many students must pass state tests to be certified and is clearly conversant with state exam content. […] I am ecstatic to see diversity, developmental status, and special needs integrated into practically every chapter […] so that it is a part of the everyday life of the teacher. […] This text is definitely written for preservice teachers”

-Susan Carol Losh, Florida State University
