"For those seeking practical activities that have been tested in actual high school classrooms, Stone’s book is just what the teacher ordered. Written in conversational style by award-winning teachers, this book does what the Internet and discipline-specific teachers’ organizations fail to do: it consolidates exemplary teaching practices on diverse topics from various academic fields into one easy-to-read resource."
