Further Education; Part-Time Teachers Speak.
Based on the reports of forty-four experienced part time teachers, this pamphlet examines the overall situation in the evening institutes in the West and East Ridings of Yorkshire. Subjects covered include: subject and special problems, teaching aims, kind of students, difficulties, effective teaching, and lessons learned by teachers. The age composition of the students, the varying degrees of preparedness of the students, inadequate physical conditions, the shortage of supplies, the eagerness of teenagers (favorable and unfavorable), attitudes of older adults (favorable and unfavorable), the teachers' awareness of the needs of the students, the necessity to move at the pace of the students, and the desire to inculcate certain moral values, emerge as general characteristics of the tasks perceived by the teachers. The subject areas include domestic and women's subjects; foreign languages; choral music, speech, and dramatic art; dancing and keep-fit; physical education and sports; art and photography; woodwork and pottery; car maintenance; and commercial arts.
