Teaching for Understanding: Policy to Practice.
Swail, Watson Scott
This monograph identifies key policy areas that support the concept of teaching for understanding. Part 1, "Teaching for Understanding," explores the mission and practices associated with teaching for understanding, presenting this practice from the viewpoint of the student, teacher, and school system. Part 2, "Policy Areas," identifies four areas of policy that are critical to the reform of the education system (teacher evaluation; staff development; school organization and culture; and teacher preparation, certification, and licensure). Part 3, "Policy Application," builds upon the information discussed in part 2 to develop a framework from which educators can identify the policy parameters within the scope of teaching for understanding. The monograph concludes that it is essential for educational researchers to understand the importance of policy factors in the reform process. (Contains 49 references.) (SM)
