I was introduced to an earlier edition of this book two years ago, partially tried it with primary students, and had moderate success. When I was alerted to this edition, I was impressed by the well-defined almost cookbook style way that the program can be implemented. Most busy teachers need to be given srtaight-forward directions and this book fits that bill. Then there were several building blocks that were changed for the better from the 2nd edition. This book has revived my faith in the ability to create a classroom climate where students will work together to solve problems. I am really looking forward to implementing as much of this philosophy into my classroom as possible.
