Review:

 "It is the clearest approach I have seen for helping teachers distinguish the difference between concepts and facts. I will recommend it everywhere."

Author: Heidi Hayes Jacob, Curriculum Designers, Inc

"A lucid and helpful volume, very much what people need to move beyond simplistic teaching." Author: Grant P. Wiggins Source: Learning by Design, Inc.

"For me, the book is a desirable blend of theory, practice, and illustration. Its explanations are clear, and the translation of those explanations into classroom examples helps me move from vision to implementation. The book has clarified for me what it means to think about a discipline like an expert would―what it means to help students construct frameworks of meaning in a discipline―what it means to develop both curriculum and assessments that are catalysts for relevance, coherence, connectivity, and power." Author: Carol Ann Tomlinson, author
