Proposed Schenley High School Teacher Center.
Part I of this brief document outlines seven opportunities provided for Pittsburgh secondary teachers by the Schenley High School Teacher Center. These opportunities include observing exemplary instructional activities in a real setting, practicing new skills and techniques, receiving feedback on that practice, and translating theory into practice. Part II covers the center's background from the initial planning activities in fall 1981 to the presentation of final recommendations in May 1982. General student program characteristics, including the center's goal of providing for new magnet programs, are the subject of Part III. Part IV outlines the various phases of the teacher's projected experience with the center, which consists of orientation, direct involvement at the center, and followup reinforcement and support at the home school. Part V, the final section, addresses eight major considerations in the center's development: (1) administration, (2) the advisory council, (3) staffing, (4) students, (5) curriculum, (6) instruction, (7) facilities, and (8) budgeting.
