Each of the volume's 23 chapters is a canonical piece that will serve as a reference tool for the field. The chapters, all broad treatments of areas of study, will help readers see how particular areas of research connect with the larger issues of teaching and teacher education. The Handbook, therefore, provides readers with a "20,000-foot view" of the current state of education research."
