The content is both theoretical and practical because Berthoff believes that by continually examining what they are doing, teachers can discover how to do it. In twelve talks to school and college teachers, she shows how a theory of imagination can provide an array of speculative instruments-ideas to think with in order to teach forming, thinking, and writing.The talks are followed by short accounts from famous teachers (including Montessori, Tolstoy, Freire, Richards, Ashton-Warner, and Jane Addams) of how they discovered that learning anything is a matter of making meaning.
