"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)
