“This book is a very valuable tool for individual teachers and the collaborative teams they are working so hard to further develop. The chapters beautifully align and offer a very strong guideline for the planning and implementation process for mathematics instruction and assessment.”

Pamela Richards, teacher on special assignment, secondary mathematics & science, Visalia Unified School District, California

“This book is a significant addition to the PLC at Work™ library—a Learning by Doing for mathematics. The power of the Common Core does not reside in the actual standards, but in how these rigorous learning outcomes impact classroom instruction and student learning. Kanold, Kanold-McIntyre, Larson, and Briars describe with specificity and simplicity the essential work teacher teams must do before, during, and after a unit of study to ensure every student succeeds. I only wish this book was available when I taught middle-school mathematics!”

Mike Mattos, educational author and consultant
