The Reviews Are In. CATESOL This Week

by Stephanie Walla on November 11, 2015

The CATESOL Journal recently reviewed two of our books, Grammar Choices for Graduate and Professional Writers by Nigel A. Caplan and Narrating Their Lives: Examining English Language Teachers’ Professional Identities within the Classroom by Lía D. Kamhi-Stein.

Grammar Choices was called “an indispensable addition to the bookshelves of prospective scholars,” and the review ended with the summary that the explanations, examples, and charts included in it make it “a pleasure to use.”

Narrating Their Lives (a teacher training text) was called “reader-friendly, reflective, and inspirational,” and Kamhi-Stein was commended for her ability to combine research and narrative for text that is “informative and inspiring to any teacher, new or veteran.”

For more a deeper look into either of these books, take a look at them on our website or click on the covers below!
