    "Explicit instruction is something that benefits every single student, not just those with learning difficulties. This
    book breaks down how to deliver explicit instruction for a variety of content areas, skill sets, and strategies in a way
    that will effectively reach a diverse group of learners. As a teacher of both general and special education students, I
    have had a tremendous amount of success with all of my students by utilizing the principles outlined in this book. This
    is a valuable resource for all teachers."--Courtney Dexter, MEd, special education teacher, Bellefonte Area Middle
    School, Bellefonte, Pennsylvania

    "Archer and Hughes have laid bare the architecture of effective instruction in this 'must-read' volume. Extensive
    research has converged on quality of instruction as the core ingredient in school improvement; the genius of this book
    is the clarity with which it explicates how this quality can be intentionally developed in every classroom. Each
    strategy or process is illustrated with concrete examples from diverse classrooms. In my 40 years in education, I have
    never before seen a book as insightful, comprehensive, and practical as this one. Every educator will treasure
    it!"--Kevin Feldman EdD, Emeritus Director of Reading and Intervention, Sonoma County (California) Office of Education

    "If I had to recommend one book that would arm teachers with the instructional practices they need to have the greatest
    chance of dramatically improving their students’ achievement, this would be the one. This is the definitive resource on
    explicit instruction. Every page is filled with detailed descriptions of how to implement the most powerful explicit
    instruction teaching practices. Brilliantly conceptualized and written, this book will be embraced by practicing
    teachers and administrators as well as those preparing future educators."--Donald D. Deshler, PhD, Williamson Family
    Distinguished Professor of Special Education and Director, Center for Research on Learning, University of Kansas

    "I have used this text for three semesters/m-/finally, a book the students will keep! I have used a number of texts in
    my methods courses over the past 10 years and this one is certainly the best on the market. The writing is clear and
    appropriate for both undergraduates and graduate teacher candidates; without fail, my students say it is the best text
    they ever purchased. If you could see my copy of the book, you'd see reference tabs all over it so I know where to look
    when I'm teaching."--Dee Berlinghoff, PhD, Professor of Education, Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, New York
