An introduction to the concept is provided along with questions to ask (and their answers). Activities, lessons with scripted questions, ELL/ESL strategies, notes on the sidebar elements, tips for differentiating instruction based on learning styles, and vocabulary/pronunciation helps will help homeschoolers construct a well-rounded lesson. 503 pages, hardcover.
