Parts of this book were excellent other parts dragged a bit I most enjoyed the descriptions of how the excellent teachers planned purposefully to help students succeed However there wasn't anything particularly new in the chapter if the reader is familiar with the principles of backwards design and planning learning vs planning activities What the authors do successfully is describe what those who implement such planning actually do They discuss having a vision for the classroom at the end of the year then breaking that vision down into steps that are achievable One young teacher said that once she learned the value of having a vision for learning she no longer was picking activities that I hoped would interest my students and that somehow through that interest they would learn Making sure students themselves see that vision is key as well
