Identifying Critical Content grabs your attention and holds it because the 'examples' and 'nonexamples' ring so true to me as a lifelong practitioner. I can hear and see my colleagues and myself in the narrative. -- Maryann Woods-Murphy "New Jersey Teacher of the Year" I knew just a few pages into the manuscript exactly how I could use its content to grow in my profession. I learned a great deal about effective delivery of critical content, am now able to better identify potential mistakes, and have a new toolkit full of monitoring strategies. -- Tiffany Richard "2012 Kansas Teacher of the Year" "Identifying Critical Content grabs your attention and holds it because the 'examples' and 'nonexamples' ring so true to me as a lifelong practitioner.
