"Curriculum mapping has been a stepping stone for our faculties to become professional learning communities. It has provided a vehicle for our teachers to engage in professional conversations for the benefit of our students. Janet Hale has given us the road map for this journey." -- David Woolwine, Associate Superintendent
"Janet Hale has captured the layered foundation of curriculum mapping. She makes the journey through the how's and what's of mapping an easier and more understandable experience. This book is a great resource for teachers beginning or already on the path of developing individualized maps." -- Donna Bateman, Teacher
"Provides very practical strategies for designing and implementing a successful curriculum mapping initiative. Hale offers specific illustrations to help move teachers away from writing activities to designing curriculum. The concrete examples included throughout are easy to understand and will be used as guides by our teachers as we move forward with consensus map design." -- Jeffrey Dolce, Curriculum and Staff Development Coordinator
"An essential, easy-to-follow guidebook. Hale has done an excellent job in outlining the step-by-step process of curriculum mapping. As a classroom teacher, I couldn't imagine a better tool for planning and implementing my lessons. Curriculum mapping has helped me better plan for instruction and make certain that I have covered the necessary state standards. As I continue my journey on the road to developing more effective maps, this book will be a resource I will refer to and recommend to my colleagues." -- Monica Duvall, Fifth-Grade Teacher
"An excellent guide for schools and districts interested in implementing curriculum mapping. The author was honest in her approach, emphasizing that this process is not a 'quick fix' and that key components must be in place for it to be successful. After reading the book, I am ready to 'saddle up' and start preparing for a prologue year." -- Vanessa Eugene, Administrator
"An outstanding survey for putting data-based decision practices into real-world teaching experiences. Hale's work with thousands of educators offers steps for mapping efforts that can fuel school cultures." -- The Bookwatch, May 2008
