The Wiley Advantage

  • Technology is integrated throughout the chapters along with well-established websites for reference and WebQuests as important project-based instructional strategies. 
  •  Increased coverage of sheltered instruction includes ways to meet the needs of ELL students while at the same time meeting the needs of other students.
  • Demonstration lesson plans relate to many different content areas.
  • Double Entry Journal features ask students to think about what they know about the chapter topic before they read the material, and then go back to their notes and add, revise, or amend after reading.
  • Classroom and School Scenarios begin each chapter, while What This Chapter Means to You sections at the end of the chapter link directly to the opening scenario. This provides the student with one more way to link the material to real and/or vicarious experience. 
  • What Goes In My Portfolio suggestions at the end of each chapter help students who may have to create a program or course portfolio.
