I have purchased four of Paula’s books. They are excellent tools. I used Leading the Learning and The 21st Century Mentor’s Handbook as a mentor teacher. Several of the strategies and activities from Why Didn’t I Learn This in College? I have used with new teachers and Instruction for All Students was taken from me by a teacher the moment she flipped through the pages. The material is easy to read, nicely organized and easy to understand. It is clear and every strategy and piece of advice is useful. They are the greatest resources one can use.

I would like you to know that as a college instructor preparing teachers for teaching, Instruction for All Students is the methods book I wish I had written myself. It is a concise, hands-on guide to the best practices for classroom teaching. Thank you for your time and for publishing this incredible resource for teachers and for those who teach teachers.
