This is book number 334 in the Counterpoints series.


This collection of essays lays bare cutting-edge ideas - and the ensuing dilemmas - in teacher education. Through the agency of conversation leading educational thinkers grapple with one another as they debate ideas within particular strands of teacher education knowledge, and pose provocative questions to the reader. This innovative design compels the reader to engage in and further the dialogue, and in doing so to contribute, situate, and examine his or her own position.
