dc.description.abstractIn this book, Henry Davis McHenry, Jr. sets forth his thoughtful conviction that teachers must constantly invent and re-invent ways of being together with their students that will enable both a shared mastery and a shared apprenticeship. Philosophically grounded yet personably written for ordinary careful readers, with examples from experiences with the author's students, the book engages the reader in inquiry rather than argument. It aims to produce awareness, not simply a list of tips and prescriptions.
