Format: Paperback
This guide presents the Teaching for Understanding framework in highly readable and concrete ways. The guide asks teachers to explore what they most want their students to understand, helps them evaluate their current practice and asks teachers to evaluate how well they know if their students understand what they are teaching.
In each chapter comments by teachers and students involved in this process are shared. They are most helpful as are the brainstorming chart and the reflection checklist in chapter 8.
I'll never look at assessment,planning, goals and objectives in quite the same way that I used to before reading this book. I am challenged by its ideas to act to change my practice.

Relatively free from jargon and meaningless homilies it is a must (and I do not use this phrase lightly) for all who seriously want to improve the quality of what they teach. It's strength is that it is based in what good teachers already do and is capable of being used "right from the book". If you are doing all this good stuff already it is still worth reading to reinforce your confidence in your methodology. It is important that we teach our pupils how to think and how to solve problems rather than merely transmit knowledge that lies inert except to pass exams or become child entertainers to make education "fun" but lacking any real substance. This is not the panacea to all your problems but merits serious consideration.

This book is very interesting and very useful for educatinoal context. I'm studing a wide world course (Harvard University) about YfU and It's the book support for that.

Thank for your interest.

I would not buy this book for trying to improve my teaching. I had to buy it for a class and it had some good ideas in there but there are better books out there.

Blythe gave an organized guide to creating a lesson for understanding. It was easy to follow and well explained. The classroom examples were perfectly match with each section and helped with content understanding.
