This morning, after reading a few pages a day for a couple of months, I finally finished Martha Stone Wiske’s (she edited) excellent book Teaching for Understanding: Linking Practice with Research (San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1998). Like the National Research Council’s How People Learn, this book is a road map to the kind of deep conceptual teaching I yearn to do.
I grabbed this goal-setting form for writing from the book’s pages, if you can use it.
If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
