    Review:

    Co-author Doug Fisher received this note:

     

    "Dr. Fisher, I have read your book twice- back to back! I have never read any book two times, but I found even more information on the second reading. It is so interesting and so jam packed with information. I am an ELL specialist and consultant. I will be teaching a class of teachers next week and have add so much information to my plans for the class after reading your book. I will definitely be promoting it next week. Thank you so much for providing so much information and insightful reasoning. I taught ELLs for over fifteen years. I used many of the approaches and strategies that you advocate in your book and they worked beautifully with my students. You and your fellow author, Carol, do such an excellent job in providing insight into why these strategies work for language learners. Thanks again."

        -Linda Iza, ELL Specialist
