Informational and Easy to Read Feb 25, 2008
This book started with a breif chapter on brain research and then chunked the rest of the chapters starting with the individual, moving to the environment, content, process, products, management, and quick steps. This book discussed everything I had read in other books, but also had insightful stories and a section on classroom management. The layout and writing made it quick to read; I read it in an afternoon.
