Reform requires us to rethink our teaching, to view teaching through different eyes. Such change requires professional development experiences that are long term and sustained. The experiences must challenge teachers to consider new ways of thinking about teaching, as opposed to merely providing them with new activities. This chapter chronicles a teacher’s pursuit of learning about her classroom practice and provides one example of teacher change.
