"Mirrors & Windows offers teachers and students a great deal of support, including special support for the English language learner. The vast array of literary selections, exercises before, during, and after reading, and the distribution of instructional activities throughout the student edition and other components ensure that the student receives regular reinforcement and support for developing language skills. The selections reflect cultures and traditions that can offer students an exciting glimpse into worlds that many have never known about."
