"The essence of good teaching is in this book. It's a potent reminder of what it means when teachers teach whole human beings-their minds, hearts, and souls. Erickson helps us recall what all great teachers know: quality teaching is about building young lives." -- Carol Ann Tomlinson, Professor, University of Virginia
"Erickson sets the standard for concept-based curriculum. Her work offers a theoretically rich and eminently practical approach for constructing curriculum around rich, transferable concepts. The third edition extends this seminal work for the benefit of educators and their students." -- Jay McTighe, Educational Consultant, McTighe and Associates
"Shows us the value of teaching to transferable ideas, and emphasizes deep understanding versus shallow coverage of material. Erickson guides educators in designing a high-quality curriculum organized around the essential concepts and ideas of each discipline. This book a must-read for preservice and inservice teachers and administrators at all levels." -- Lois Lanning, Assistant Superintendent
"Erickson's work is a gift for teachers striving to prepare students for the exciting challenges of the twenty-first century. The concepts of teaching for global citizenship in today's world come alive with Erickson's clear, practical, and inspiring guidance." -- Irene Davy, Director
