Industry Reviews

"An excellent resource for science teachers. Includes user-friendly, ready-to-use assessments, complete with analytical rubrics that can be adapted to almost any classroom!" -- Melissa Miller, Science Teacher
"Designing and using performance assessment tools can be very challenging for beginning teachers. The authors offer a fantastic starting point for all science educators to examine their current method of assessment and apply new and different types of authentic assessment strategies across the curriculum." -- Sheila Smith, Science Specialist/National Science Foundation Project Director
"Teachers who are exploring new ways of integrating mathematics and writing into their science curriculum will be well served by this book. The activities are general enough to provide creative teachers with numerous ideas for incorporating the various tools into their own curricular activities." -- NSTA Recommends, January 2008
"The instructional templates and plans offered will enable readers to incorporate the key ideas into their current lessons." -- Curriculum Connections, Spring 2008
