This book portrays the experiences of five secondary school teachers who were involved in a school restructuring initiative. The book reflects the initiative's focus on interdisciplinary curriculum development, team teaching, and block scheduling. The story of change is presented through five interlocking and mutually reinforcing themes that dominated the teachers' experience and understanding: uncertainty; intensification; lack of administrative leadership; subject allegiance versus team loyalty; and craft pride, caring, and moral purpose.
