The Dunwoody Papers, Report of National Training Conference for Distributive Education (1st, Minneapolis, August 14-25, 1939).
Knouse, Reno S.
Committee reports and group discussions are presented for a conference called by the Office of Education. The committee on organization and development considered a statement of objectives, the development of a sound program of training that will sell itself on merit, the approach of developing a new program as a merchandising problem, the development of a sound technique of answering objections, and new fields where training needs exist. The committee on teacher training considered the location and selection of teacher candidates, the peculiar characteristics of the teacher's job, the most effective plan for training discussion group leaders, inservice training, and leader training programs for a local community. The committee on instructional material considered the need and demand for a universal form for the preparation and effective exchange of teaching materials, the content of such a standard form, and conference adoption of such a form. The committee on methods listed methods to be considered, and characteristics of each, defined the nature of each method, suggested ways of using the method to advantage, and compiled for group discussion a list of problems related to methods.
