This booklet provides detailed, step-by-step advice on how to organize and conduct a successful teacher fair, which is a way to reach and teach the community about what is really happening in the schools. A teacher fair held in May 1981 is described to illustrate the general events that take place, i.e.: (1) actual teaching demonstration in a mock classroom; (2) teams of area high school students competing in a "Quiz Bowl"; (3) separate area devoted to vocational-technical opportunities; (4) displays of student work; (5) staff exhibits; and (6) student performances (orchestras, bands, etc.). An outline is provided describing the activities and events offered at teacher fairs and the specific planning that is necessary to make them successful. A suggested schedule of decision making, delegation of authority, fund raising, and publicity is presented which encompasses a full year of planning for the event. Methods for evaluating the fair are also discussed. (JD)
