"This handbook will both encourage and assist those teachers who take on the important challenge of helping their students to think deeply and resourcefully and to use that intellectual power constructively." - Theodore R. Sizer, chairman, Coalition of Essential Schools Walks teachers through the "teaching for understanding" process. The authors offer classroom examples, practical tips, and worksheets to help clarify the process. They also show how to select engaging and appropriate topics, set coherent unit and course goals, create dynamic learning activities, improve student performance through continual feedback, and more.
