Review quote

"Good books have a way of illuminating incidents so that one's own experiences come in to sharper focus. This was certainly the case for me while reading this accessible and very important book." - Patricia Wasley, from the Foreword "This book is superb. The concepts are clearly explained and the uses in practice come to vivid life. I love the student quotes and how easy it is to see what the teachers did with the students' ideas." - Connie Titone, College of New Jersey "Deserves to be on the short list of recommended readings for beginning teachers and veterans alike." - Jay McTighe, Independent Consultant
