Editorial Reviews

Review

"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." (Lois Lanning, Assistant Superintendent of Schools 2005-10-17)

"The author makes a strong appeal for raising the level of curriculum development. Reader friendly with lots of illustrations and examples, personal in tone, and down to earth. I especially like the practical approaches and step-by-step guidance." (Kathy Hargrove, Associate Dean 2005-10-21)

"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." (Carol Ann Tomlinson, Professor of Educational Leadership 2005-10-15)

"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 as dealing with voluminous content standards and accountability tests. This book makes a worthwhile and important contribution to the field." (Jay McTighe, Educational Consultant and Author 2005-11-14)

"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." (William Fitzhugh, Second-Grade Teacher 2005-11-02)

In the last decade I have tried to go deeply into my instructional strategies that indeed help the student of higher education to development their intelligence, critical thinking and potential creative without neglecting the contents. It has been an arduous but very interesting challenge. It is wonderful to find in this book a practical guide that take into account the conceptual structure from each discipline. The author has given me many answers product of her experience, that I hope help me to focus and to order better my teaching strategies. The examples in this book show how to extrapolate the factual knowledge to the conceptual understanding to connect it with student's experiences to give it a personal meaning, so that they can solve the manifold and complex problems that they will have to face at the real world

I think the concepts in this book are great, however it is boring. I fell asleep reading it every time I picked it up. Being a primary teacher I felt it was geared toward secondary teachers. But the concepts will really help you examine how you are teaching things.

What education should be. Memorizing lists vs critical thinking. The difference is a thinking society. Highly ecommended for teachers and those who provide the funding to make education happen.

This book provides an accurate framework for approaching the current trajectory of educational structure and the logic at work in the backward design approach to instruction. It's an essential read for all educator who are attempting to come to terms with the logic and philosophy at work in the structure backward design.

As a new teacher I found this book extremely insightful and helpful. A downside is that the examples given could have been more or more detailed.

This is a must read for those teachers concerned with helping their students become more of a critical thinker. Very good information for everyday use. Using this for a graduate class but also using the information in my classroom everyday. Cheaper price on Amazon.com than at the college bookstore.
