This book requires braving education-theory speak, but its aims are worthwhile: to focus on what the authors call a "performance of understanding," i.e., to shift one's emphasis from products to process in the classroom.

While not useful for everyday teaching ideas, the book offers some questions to ask yourself that might be helpful for curriculum design (or redesign) (see esp. Ch. 3).
