"The content is powerful. Seeing examples from all grades levels is important so that readers, regardless of teaching level, can see that it can be done in their situation." -- Sue DeLay, Curriculum Resource Teacher "Contains real-life examples of integration and includes examples from the author's own experience in the classroom, making the work much more appealing and credible for teachers. The author has practiced her own theories and talks about them in humble terms, meaning she does not hide the failures." -- Mary Ann Kahl, Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership "I have taught integrated curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate level over the past six years and have helped administrate a school that developed its whole curriculum around integration. This book would have been very useful in both situations. I look forward to using it in my current teaching." -- Gary Babiuk, Assistant Professor of Education "As I read the book, I thought 'thank goodness.' This is the first book I have read that lays out a big picture that I can buy into and explains how to look at accountability in a positive way." -- Jane Adair, Resource Specialist
