Review "I appreciate the distinction... between strategies and routines, especially indicating the focus of strategies as being student-focused and routines being teacher-initiated. Student work samples illustrating the application of various routines help readers visualize possible student response to routines. I also was pleased to see the expansion of subject areas in the application section as this supports the concept of content area integration."        Miriam A.
