Dr. Walkup has provided educators with a trifecta in his book, The Art and Science of Lesson Design. He lays out the what, the why, and the how of creating lessons that are engaging, relevant, and rigorous for students. He meticulously walks readers through every aspect of the planning process providing examples as quality models. Walkup brings the cognitive rigor matrix to instructional life.--Connie Hamilton, EdS, author, Hacking Questions; co-author, Hacking Homework; K-12 curriculum director, Saranac Community Schools; education consultant
No matter what pedagogical preferences a teacher may have, Dr. Walkup's Rigor Cube helps determine how to fit the content and goals with the appropriate teaching strategy. His subtle humor, practicality, and humility bridge the gulf between teaching philosophy warriors. This standards-based lesson planning guide is a must-have for both pre-service and veteran educators.--Lane Walker, EdD, NBCT teacher, high school mathematics
The Art and Science of Lesson Design cuts through the noise typically associated with many books on education and lays out a clear, thorough, well-researched path to designing rigorous lessons. As a teacher in a competitive college preparatory school, I have used Dr. Walkup's guide to plan, deliver, and assess high quality lessons that both stimulated and challenged my students. This book should be required reading in every teacher preparation program and it should be on the shelf of every educator.--Matthew Ryan, high school English teacher
