Lipka, Richard P., Ed.; Brinthaupt, Thomas M., Ed.

Part 2, "Becoming a Teacher: Preservice Education," includes (3) "Becoming a Teacher: The Person in the Process" (S. Vianne McLean) and (4) "Dimensions of Self that Influence Effective Teaching" (Gary D. Borich). Part 3, "The First Years of Teaching," includes (5) "Teacher Self-Appraisal and Appraisal of Self" (Les Tickle) and (6) "Identity and Induction: Establishing the Self in the First Years of Teaching" (Paul G. Schempp, Andrew C. Sparkes, and Thomas J. Templin). Part 4, "Reexamining and Affirming: The Master Teachers," includes (7) "Caring: The Way of the Master Teacher" (Karen J. Agne) and (8) "Effective Teachers: What They Do, How They Do It, and the Importance of Self-Knowledge" (Don Hamachek).
