Editorial Reviews

Lois Lanning
"The book provides the foundation for understanding the structure of knowledge, Bloom's taxonomy (original and revised), and the terminology associated with contemporary instructional practice. It has a style that enables the reader to assimilate complex ideas easily."
Kathy Hargrove
"The author makes a strong appeal for raising the level of curriculum development. Reader friendlywithlots of illustrations and examples, personal in tone,and down to earth. I especially like thepractical approaches and step-by-step guidance."
Carol Ann Tomlinson
"I love the author’s delineation of her own understanding of concept-based teaching over an 18-year period. Somehow that humanizes the work of teaching and helps us understand that only as we risk growth will we be able to guide our students in that way as well."
Jay McTighe
"Well written with a practical orientation. Its numerous examples help bring the abstract ideas to life. It addresses the needs of present-day educators, such asdealing with voluminous content standards and accountability tests. This book makes a worthwhile and important contribution to the field."
William Fitzhugh
"Contains many charts that show how content, methodology, and assessment are integrated. The blank documents that teachers can photocopy are great. The tables really help me understand what the text says."
