Someone I know has been told they will be using "depth of knowledge" as the goal (or means, neither of us is sure) to improve teaching. She is a new teacher and told me everything she could remember, but, while it sounds like a great thing, the whole thing sounds like a lot of educratese.
She is "supposed to take the lesson to a new level" and the stress is on the use of certain words, but surely it is the concept not the words.
The more she discussed the meetings they have had, the more it smacks of semantics.
Has anyone else heard of this?
