Finding Clarity in Teaching: One Teacher's Struggle
Roberson, Sam
Educational Policy Analysis and Strategic Research, v12 n1 p5-16 2017
Teaching and learning are interdependent terms, and the work of the teacher is to ensure that students learn. Teachers need to be clear on what they mean by "learning." Learning is often judged by what students accumulate in content or is based on a student's mastery of content as revealed by grades. However, for the author, there is more to learning-specifically, the behaviors of the learner. The author proposes a "Rubric for Learning Behavior" to augment the concept of "learning" with a concept of the engagement of the "learner." In doing so, the author clarified his own struggle to make sense of the relationship between teaching and learning.
