My Favorite "Go-To" Books

My Favorite "Go-To" Books... 

For Foreign Language, one of my favorite books is the Teacher's Handbook: Contextualized Language Instruction. We used it in my method's class in undergrad at U of M, and also in one of my grad classes at NC State. I used this book often during my first few years of teaching French and Spanish so I would definitely recommend it to new teachers, as well as teachers that are trying to increase their use of the National Standards, or the "5 C's" (Communication, Cultures,Connections, Comparisons, and Communities) in context.
