Excerpt: Constructivism is an epistemology, a theory of knowledge used to explain how we know what we know. We believe that a constructivist epistemology is useful to teachers if used as a referent; that is, as a way to make sense of what they see, think, and do. Our research indicates that teacher’s beliefs about how people learn (their personal epistemology), whether verbalized or not, often help them make sense of, and guide, their practice.
