Curricular Resources and Classroom Use

Gabriel J. Stylianides

Oxford University Press

“Description of the Practical Approach” presents the practical approach for studying curricular resources (such as textbooks) and their classroom use. This approach, which is one of the two major approaches discussed in the book, offers a practical way to examine the classroom fidelity of implementation of a large number of curricular tasks belonging to a common family (such as the family of “reasoning-and-proving,” “algebra-related,” or “problem-solving” tasks in mathematics). This aspect of the approach, together with the fact that it can be applied to a wide range of classroom settings, is its main advantage. A drawback of the approach is that it does not offer a way to explain the observed fidelity of implementation.
