Research, Development, and the Classroom Teacher Producer/Consumer.
DeVault, M. Vere, Ed; And Others
A selection of six conference papers deals with aspects of research in elementary schools. Albert H. Yee traces teacher attitude toward research since the late 19th century, citing the opposition to new methods which may be encountered, and raising the question of how much real influence the school has on a child's development. The need for teacher training in research and for cooperation with researchers and parents is stressed. Kenneth R. Howey and John M. Kean consider information sources already used by teachers, including group consensus and the opinions of authorities or experts, and the need for greater emphasis on research, while Margaret Ammons discusses the research done, consciously or unconsciously, by teachers as they work with students in the classroom. Robert Tabachnick speaks of the use of research projects in widening the child's understanding of the world and of himself, and Herbert J. Klaumeier discusses the Multiunit Elementary School experiment of the Wisconsin Research and Development Center for Cognitive Learning. Theodore J. Czajkowski and Donald N. Lange provide a comprehensive list of research and development resources, including R & D Centers, regional educational laboratories, ERIC clearinghouses, and periodicals and journals. (MBM)
