“This book makes the reader think deeply about the role of curriculum planning and its connection to assessment in this age of accountability.”
“For educators who want students and schools to be successful, this book provides a clear and proven process to accomplish this goal. It is succinct, yet packed with what’s really important to create, develop, assess, and lead curriculum. As a university professor of educational leadership, Deciding What to Teach and Test remains my text of choice for graduate students.”
Praise for the Second Edition:“The strengths in this book are characteristic of all of English's works. The language is easy to follow, the text is set up in logical development by chapters, and the focus of his work is constant. He never strays from the topic or goes off on a tangent. Most important, his information is practical, doable, and sensible. The book is easy for practitioners, teachers, administrators, and those involved in the daily work of schools to adapt to their needs and make it work for them.”
Excellent book! My students appreciated his clear and direct approach to the importance of curriculum alignment. I highly recommend this book for educational leadership programs.
