Dougherty is a consultant with education foundations and agencies on curriculum and professional development; she has taught in public, private, and postsecondary institutions, and worked in practice and policy organizations, including the US Dept. of Education and the Education Trust. Based on ten-plus years of coaching and working with teachers across the US, her concise, accessible text guides teachers and administrators in the craft of creating quality assignments, by laying out a seven-step design process that demystifies and streamlines assignment making. The text also helps educators become more aware of the impact of assignments on teaching and learning, and explains ways to create data and feedback from assignments and student work to determine next steps and other supports.
