Editorial Reviews

Janice Earle
“The D&I centers helped many schools and districts change how they defined the goals of their science education program and the materials and methods they used to bring science to life for their students. This book will no doubt be another part of the centers’ legacy. "
Jo Anne Vasquez
"Provides a comprehensive blueprint to science curriculum and instructional materials reform. The lessons learned, written by those who have lived them, provide the wisdom and knowledge necessary to help others set their own direction."
