"I appreciate the vision of this text. I believe that the education system needs to change to better meet the needs of students and the demands of our current and ever-changing times. . . . Hopefully texts such as this one will contribute to the discussion and influence decision makers to
adopt the necessary changes to improve the system."

"The key strength of this book is the integration of the three components of curriculum, instruction, and assessment. These three are the essentials of effective teaching, so integrating them is a major improvement over treating them separately."
