This book is a book of questions. In fact, it was written in the first place to answer the question, "What are the things people beginning their formal study of education should know?" We have organized the chapters of our book around a series of questions that rae likely to be of special concern to prospective teachers, and which we believe are keys to the central issues and concerns of teaching and learning.
