"Each contributor brings impressive teaching credentials to the book. Marie Baptiste's comments on teaching a heritage Mi'kmaq language have relevance for other heritage languages, particularly French. Eleanor Duckworth draws on her own rich teaching experience in presenting a creative approach to science teaching."

- Edward L. Edmonds Canadian Book Review Annual

"The contributors look at a variety of topics: how to engage high school students in anti-sexism and anti-racism programs; how to get kids interested in science; how to make history and social studies relevant; how to teach streamed students; how to create a curriculum committed to excellence as well as social justice."
