Data use in teaching is at the heart of current educational policy and school improvement efforts. Dispelling magical thinking that it is a simple solution to underachieving schools, this timely book explores what data use in teaching really is, how it works in theory and practice, and why it sometimes fails to achieve expected goals. Drawing on their research in nine of New York City's most poverty impacted schools, the authors dive deep into school systems and routines, as well as into teachers' practices and students' experiences. They also zoom out to capture the larger currents that have made this school reform strategy so prominent today. Each chapter includes a discussion of a new direction that schools and teachers can take to ensure that data use in teaching actually spurs growth in learning. This resource extracts lessons from both chaotic and productive data implementation in order to inform practice and fulfill hopes for better schooling, richer teaching, and deeper learning.

There are a variety of views on teaching. At one extreme, some teachers deny any value to theoretical thinking: Learning to teach consists merely of acquiring tips from experienced hands. At the other extreme, some academics have a very abstract, theoretical approach. Reflective teaching lies between; it allows practitioners to relate practice and theory within their own particular contexts.No other text has done more to promote reflective teaching. This new edition is fully updated to respond to: --new research findings--social change--developments in educational policy--new standards for initial teacher educationIt also maintains continuity with the Third Edition, having the same structure, and a cross-referenced index. The book may be read independently, but it is also part of an unprecedented support package including: --RT web, a regularly updated website with supplementary text, activities and further reading--Readings for Reflective Teaching; the companion books is a unique mini-library of well over a hundred education readings, both classic and contemporary
