A Promising Pedagogy: Linking Learning and Caring
           Cherie A. McCollough, Texas A&M University Corpus Christi, TX
ABSTRACT  
The current era of accountability in education includes testing requirements 
from legislation such as No Child Left Behind requiring effective measurement 
and analysis of student achievement data. A second emphasis is the recommendation 
to have student-centered approaches to teaching and learning. This study reports 
how teachers have made the standards movement more compatible by coupling the 
How Students Learn (Donovan & Bransford, 2005) approach to science teaching and 
learning with an ethic of care, creating a Pedagogy of Promise (McCollough, 2005).
