Based on Temple University's acclaimed course, 'The Art and Science of Teaching,' Allender draws the student-teacher into a series of narratives that develop as scenes from a play. As the drama unfolds, the reader becomes part of a classroom where the teacher's strategy shifts from speaking to listening and where students teach and the teacher learns. The book demonstrates how to create a vital, lively, learning environment in which everyone involved can expect to be interactive, spontaneous, and effective.
