Professor Hal White of the University of Delaware has edited this fine collection of material for those seeking to learn more about laboratory instruction at the college level. These "TA Tales" were sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and their four-year Undergraduate Science Education Grants. The materials place a premium on teaching cases which provide "an incomplete story in which an unresolved problem is presented and left for the reader or discussants to analyze and propose reasonable action." Visitors will find well over 50 teaching cases including "Cell Phone-Turn Off?", "Chemistory", "Doctor's Note", and "Early Dismissal." The cases cover a myriad of topics including plagiarism, classroom etiquette, and other allegorical tales of the classroom experience.
