Teaching for understanding : classroom observations of this approach at two different elementary schools
The purpose of this thesis was to explore in-depth the teaching method called teaching for understanding. The thesis shows examples of how this method is used in two different Florida elementary schools, Celebration School and Cypress Elementary School. The nine components of teaching for understanding, suggested by Linda Darling- Hammond, were used as the basis for the classroom observations. Evidence was found for all components during the observations. It was observed that some of the components of teaching for understanding are within a teacher's control and some are not. The research details forms of classroom management, assessment, and activities that worked well and allowed students to learn, and most of all, understand.
