Teaching on Equal Terms; A Book for All Those Concerned with Teaching Adults.
Rogers, Jennifer, Ed.
Originally designed to accompany a televised British series, "Teaching Adults", this anthology stresses motives and expectations of adult learners, basic kinds of learning (especially discovery), and kinds of teaching situations that give adults the most confidence and encouragement. Essays consider such areas as research and experiences drawn from industrial training; how to avoid intellectual flabbiness and other pitfalls of adult teaching; how to conduct class discussions; teaching by means of student research projects; local education authorities and other sponsoring organizations; appropriate use of audiovisual aids; and various challenges and contemporary difficulties facing the adult education field. Suggestions for further reading appear at the end of each chapter. Also included are names, addresses, and other information for part time teachers seeking outside help and support. (LY)
