    - EL Gazette
  • "This book is a valuable resource for any teacher's professional development. It not only sees some positives in mixed-ability teaching and suggests strategies and differentiated tasks to help cope with the difficulties that arise, it also supports teachers looking for ways of developing learner autonomy. Although the activities provided in the book are primarily intended for primary and secondary school students, when they are creatively developed they can be easily transferred to other groups of students."
