Throughout the book, the authors address ten teacher actions from The New Art and Science of Teaching within the categories of feedback, content, and context.

Each chapter includes self-rating scales that readers can use to assess their performance on each element. By doing this, they can determine their areas of strength and the areas in which they might want to improve relative to The New Art and Science of Teaching. Each chapter ends with Guiding Questions for Curriculum Design to help with planning.
