Let's Release Children to Learn!
Crooker, Deal
Hawaii Schools, v4 n3 p20-21 Nov 1967
Today's classroom pupils are oriented toward content rather than independent study goals and, consequently, they will be unprepared to face the complex changes in society occurring during their lives. To rectify this deficiency, pupils need to learn the skills of discovery. Classrooms must become centers of intellectual ferment, with teachers providing "reference, related, and multimedia materials." The school librarian should serve as an instructional materials consultant to the teacher. As textbooks are phased out, additional money for a broad range of instructional materials will become available. Long range program budgeting, however, needs to include sufficient state and federal funds for additional materials and clerical help. With a shift from content learning to process learning, pupils can be released to become self-educating individuals. (JM)
