"One of the many things I appreciate about this edition of Joyful Learning is the range of its examples. Regardless of grade level or subject area, all K-12 teachers will find relevant gems here. Alice and Paula provide lots of details to help readers figure out how to make the various approaches work, but their recommendations are descriptive, rather than prescriptive and grounded in an abiding respect for teachers as decision makers. I love that these authors insist on the presumption of professional competence for adults just as they do for young people with and without disabilities."
