Five essential questions, Who is an educated person? What is worth knowing? What is learning? What is good teaching? What is the place of the public school in society?, provide a framework for further consideration of the three central themes. In addition, print and non-print supplements, multiple points of view on controversial issues, and access to primary resource readings help students understand how theory relates to real-life teaching scenarios.
