As more and more schools are developing concept//process curriculums, teachers find they need very specific strategies for curriculum design, instruction and evaluation. The author details how to develop curriculums in a single discipline, in interdisciplinary units, and across grade levels. She also discusses alignment with state and national standards, generating the `big ideas' topics, and performance assessments.
