Stanford Center for Research and Development in Teaching. Annual Report (1st, April 1967).
Stanford Univ., CA. Stanford Center for Research and Development in Teaching.
This report of the Stanford Center for Research and Development in Teaching consists of seven sections. Section 1 defines the Center's focus and orientation. Orientation to forthcoming changes in the teacher's role includes consideration of programed instruction, flexible scheduling, and differentiated teaching staff. The focus of the Center is reformulated to consider three types of variables: the behavioral ("the observable, objectively denotable, verbal and nonverbal behavior that occurs in the interaction of teachers and students in the classroom"), the personological ("the traits and characteristics of teachers that intervene between variables at the institutional level"), and the institutional ("phenomena and events that occur in the society at large, the community, school system, and the individual school"). Section 2, "Program Summary and Projection," delineates each of these major problem areas by describing existing projects and projecting plans for years immediately ahead. Section 3 concentrates on "Facilities and Services" and Section 4 on "Center Management and Administration." Section 5, the budget, is not included because it was submitted separately. Sections 6 and 7 present "Requests for Contract Amendments" and "Signatures." Appended are guidelines for Center organization and operation, a list of personnel, and a chart of the Center's organization. (SG)
