About the Author

Marilyn Tallerico, Ph.D., is a Professor of Education at Binghamton University, State University of New York, where she coordinates the Educational Leadership program. Prior to her university work, she served 12 years in PreK-12 public schools as a central office curriculum director, a coordinator of bilingual and English-as-a-Second Language programs, and a Spanish teacher.


Marilyn Tallerico has written a worthwhile primer on curriculum for school principals and other school leaders. In this book she concisely summarizes the literature about best practices in curriculum development and covers a broad range of theories-some of which are in significant tension with each other. Tallerico points out those tensions and discusses the practical concerns that face administrators as they try to make decisions about what might work best in their particular circumstances. -- Dr. Abe Feuerstein, Associate Dean of Faculty, College of Arts and Sciences, Bucknell University
Marilyn Tallerico has done a marvelous job of describing the role and pathways that Curriculum Directors and Principals need to consider when they set out to lead curriculum change. This book will serve as a valuable training tool for school leaders attempting to lead the curriculum development process. -- Sanford Nelson, NAESP 2010 National Distinguished Principal, Rossman Elementary School, MN
I found this book to be very readable and would have enjoyed having it as one of my textbooks when I was working on my certification as an administrator. This book can be used by those who are studying to become administrators as well as by practicing principals who want to update their knowledge of setting curriculum directions. -- Ruth G. King, NAESP 2010 National Distinguished Principal (retired), Homer Elementary School, Homer, NY
