This book is about change. It is about the change teachers create and experience as they move toward a more flexible, interpretive view of their roles. The articles were written by practicing teachers who have examined some of the uncertainties and problems they encountered when moving from a traditional to a holistic perspective in their teaching.

These teachers have written in order to share their questions, the conflicts they have undergone, and the change in beliefs that are part of becoming learner-directed teachers. The binding thread of the collection is the realization that teaching is a learning enterprise, and that teachers learn from their students, from each other, and ultimately from themselves.
