From reviews of the book: I do not think anyone can write to an undergraduate like Jeanne Ormrod can. -Deborah Switzer, Clemson University Many similar textbooks suffer from the everything, including the kitchen sink problem. This is a mostly-lean and focused text...The extensive examples help with clarity...[And I] appreciate how a chapter starts with theory and research, and ends with lots and lots of useful strategies. This book really matches its subtitle [ Big Ideas to Guide Effective Teaching ]. I ...greatly value the Cultural Considerations box in each chapter...[and] plan to make time to come back and study them again, to improve both how I teach and what I teach my students about learner differences. -Kym Buchanan, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point I see students in my class who are not able to do well in other courses ...get high grades in this course partly due to the textbook.
