Where can I find guidance on the intended use of GNOME 3 window management?

I have found the "Use windows and workspaces" section of "Getting Started with GNOME" in the GNOME Help application. I understand that operations such as minimize and maximize are available via the context menu of the title bar. I am also aware of the keyboard shortcuts and options for task switching. However, between the UI elements and keyboard shortcuts I feel that I am not using the GNOME 3 window management features efficiently. It feels like I do not fully understand how the designers intended the features to be used. I suspect it is somewhere between GNOME 2 and a tiling window manager such as wmii. Are there any design documents explaining the best practices and intended use of GNOME 3's window management features?

I don't know of any such document, but gnome shell's design webpage may be helpful.

Thanks for the link to the "GNOME Shell Design" page. It helped me make sense of the big picture for intended GNOME use.
