"Back to Basics": Rethinking What Is Basic to Education through an Interpretive Study of the Work of Teachers and Students in Elementary Classrooms.

An ongoing study has found that the "basics" in contemporary educational theory are actually the smallest, most easily isolated and most easily testable fragments of knowledge in a discipline--abstractions produced by complex analysis. The project is exploring an alternative version of "basicness" in which the complex, often ambiguous realm of a living discipline gives meaning to such fragments. (SV)
