Chapters are all very reader-friendly, chock full of up-to-date information, and engagingly written. I would definitely say it is current, accurate, and research-based. My students consistently have good things to say about the book, which is unusual for undergraduates taking a required methods course! They especially like the authentic vignettes that open each chapter, the clear organization, and the many summary tables. They clearly see the connection from theory to practice. They also like the Compendium of Instructional Procedures. I’d probably rate all chapters a 10 on a 10 point scale!
