Wyoming Teacher Resource Kit and Caboodle.
Clarke, Irene, Ed.; Moran, Lyn, Ed.
Teachers' centers, the basics, computers, classroom management, and Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) are topics of the sections of this collection of resource articles for teachers. The usefulness of this collection is not limited to Wyoming. In the section on teachers' centers are articles on the roles and responsibilities of teacher consultants (teachers who assist other teachers) and strategies for their success, profiles of Wyoming teacher consultants, brief recommendations for the professional development of teachers, and ideas for collecting inexpensive classroom materials. The "basics" section has research-based suggestions in question-and-answer format for improving pre-reading, reading and mathematics instruction; an opinion paper on the need to combine futurism with the basics; and methods, terminology and goals for futuring and future studies instruction. In the computers section are discussed the need for teachers to accept computers, the progress that has been made in Wyoming in computer literacy programs, and concepts that should be included in computer literacy programs. The articles in the classroom management section describe the characteristics and techniques of effective classroom managers, provide practical suggestions for discipline, and list brief classroom tips and motivation ideas. The document concludes with an explanation of ERIC and testimonials to its effectiveness. (DC)
