Product Reviews

When I purchased this book at a recent convention where you were exhibiting, I was told this was the most comprehensive book in the field. Well, I just thought it was a HUGE book! Once I got it home and started looking around, I was in SHEER DELIGHT! I bought this book 3 months ago and I can honestly say I can use it every day and HAVE!

Not only am I matching, stretching and celebrating with students but now I feel confident that I am doing a better job of stretching myself. I know I can find ideas in the book for the content I am teaching and each time I do, I know I coming closer to becoming an MI teacher.

I love how your book showed me how to teach to all 8 intelligences through the each intelligence. What a novel Idea! Teach and develop the Verbal/Linguistic intelligence THROUGH the Musical/Rhythmic intelligence! Perfect! You should hear the Lyrical Lessons my students have composed. Last week, we wrote songs about the characters in Harry Potter!

Kudos to Spencer and Miguel Kagan for not only writing the most comprehensive book in the field but the BEST book in the field!!

Here is what educators are saying:

All of the Kagan Cooperative materials are excellent! They are extremely "teacher-friendly!" I tell teachers all the time — They have done the research (so you don't have to) and they have packaged it in such a way that you can use it Monday morning!

For me the book seems organized in a way that is easy to understand. It is set up according to intelligences & I don't have to keep searching from one section to another to find a match for what I want to teach.

The page numbering system at the bottom of the page makes it easy to search for information. The excerpts for source documents lets me taste the authors ideas and decide if I want more. The table chart reference organizers are a fabulous time saver.

Good on theory — but not too heavy. Direct application of theory that teachers need and want. Easy to navigate through the book though it looks like a book to get lost in.

It is easy to read because it is organized so well. I like that it has basics on MI (theory, research, etc.) as well as applications (strategies, assessment.) It is very comprehensive.

The new book, over 600 pages is not overwhelming because of the layout and easy cross/reference. I "LOVE" the quotes after the chapters. I will USE this book and not just shelf it, because of its layout. It's teacher friendly.
