Learning Policy

This chapter explores the nature and extent of influences on learning by examining the instruments that policymakers used to urge teachers to learn. It first discusses the survey on which the analysis is based and what it tells about teachers, their schools, and students. The goal of the survey was to situate the original Michigan State University case studies in a wider picture of mathematics practice in California elementary schools. The chapter then discusses the instruments that were deployed by policymakers to support teachers' learning. The policy instruments include curriculum materials, professional development, professional networks, and the California Learning Assessment System (CLAS).

Keywords:   learning, Michigan State University, California, curriculum materials, professional development, professional network, California Learning Assessment System, CLAS
