Questions for Life: Powerful Strategies to Guide Critical Thinking

Dedication

It is my special privilege to dedicate this book to Joseph K. Hasenstab, the founder of Performance Learning Systems, Inc.

Joe has been my employer, teacher, colleague, mentor, and friend since 1976. At that time, having already received my undergraduate and graduate degrees in education, I enrolled in an intriguing graduate-level education course for teachers called Project TEACH . This course, designed by Joe, was my first experience with a concrete set of skills I could immediately use in my classroom. More importantly, it identified teachers as professionals who, with knowledge and practice of specific skills, could readily achieve excellence in teaching. My introduction to that course and to Performance Learning Systems ultimately led to my decision to partner with Joe in implementing his dream to provide students

with the best-trained teachers in the world.

Questions for Life ® is perhaps Joe’s most brilliant design, showing how a complex proficiency can be presented in an understandable, usable, and trainable format for teachers and students alike. I am delighted that Joe has penned the Introduction to this book.

Thank you, Joe, for all you have done for me, for teachers, for students, and for all who have benefited

from your passion for quality education.
