Education reform messages make their greatest impact on teachers who already believe that improving practice requires focusing on their students' learning. Many teachers, however, have not thought deeply about their practice in this way. The purpose of Restoring Meaning to Teaching is to engage teachers in recalling why they became teachers in the first place, and then changing their practice to make it more meaningful for children and their learning. This video profiles the stories of educators, illustrating how they shifted their focus to student learning and rediscovered meaning in their teaching. The video highlights three strategies: Shifting the Focus from Teaching to Student Learning, Developing Collegial Dialogue, and Reflecting on The Practice of Teaching.
