  1. Relational Knowledge

    Relational knowing (Gallego et al., 2001; Hollingsworth et al., 1993) is another important feature of urban teaching practice that leads to the concept of “we”. That is, the ability to “know-in-relationship” (Hollingsworth et al., 1993), to understand the meaning of the interactions between self and others, supported some teachers in feeling more efficacious in their teaching. Relational knowing helps teachers to learn from the many interactions and collaborations that are part of daily teaching.

  2. Results

    Data showing performance levels, trends, and relevant comparisons for key measures and indicators of organizational performance.
