The concept of making choices as a teacher and taking responsibility for the consequences of those choices is a central theme of this book. It is organized around five professional commitments that, taken together, are essential if teaching is going to make a difference in the lives of students. This innovative organizing structure uses the five commitments to help readers think in a more informed way about issues that affect their initial concerns when making the decision to teach as well as their professional development as teachers.
