On November 21, 1988, the University of Massachusetts held a convocation for its School of Education to celebrate its new dean, Marilyn Haring-Hidore. David C. Berliner delivered the keynote address, “The Transformation of the Teaching Profession”, based on this article, originally published with the above title in 1987 as Chapter One in Talks to Teachers: A Festschrift for N.L. Gage, which Berliner co-edited with Barak V. Rosenshine; this is the book to seek out if you want to follow up references in the text such as “Chapter 2” or “Chapter 4”. The original article is being reprinted with the permission of both David Berliner and McGraw-Hill; the latter purchased the rights to the book from Random House about the time that Berliner was concluding his address.
