Sydney J. Harris

Teachers are talking about Mirrors & Windows!

“I LOVE the Mirrors and Windows books! Great lay-out. Great pre-reading activities and info. Excellent post-reading questions and ideas for writing. I especially love how Romeo and Juliet is done–terrific front-loading info for reading Shakespeare, the time period etc. I can imagine it would be especially helpful for a teacher who is just beginning and lacks a lot of supplemental information.”

“Elma High School adopted the Mirrors and Windows program mainly because we had been so happy with the previous EMC program: Literature and the Language Arts. In fact, we banked our funding for the year of our adoption and waited for the new EMC book to be published. The selection of literature is excellent, as are the leveled questions at the end of selections. I appreciate that these questions are directly focused on specific thinking skills and are clearly labeled by these skills. The teacher materials allow so much individualization. I can target reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, specific reading, and career-building skills in every unit. I can use the Mirrors and Windows audio library to have students listen to professional readers if I want them to hear the text aloud. I can individualize assignments for my special education students, my ESL students and my most gifted students without having to create these lessons myself. There are prepared PowerPoint lessons and other electronic support, including a year-long planner and ExamView test creator. I have never had so many options, nor so much auxiliary material help, as I have now with the Mirrors and Windows program. Plus, we have received excellent, personalized customer service with EMC.”
