Learning Center Guide.
Cote, Bernard T.; Gurske, Barbara
This guide assembles a helpful set of inexpensive ideas based on sound learning theory and successful classroom experience. Two major concepts are developed: (1) the learning center and (2) contract teaching. Learning centers are characterized by their flexibility and numerous opportunities for student involvement. They may be used for the development of one or more areas of the curriculum, or for extension, enrichment, improvement, independent activities, and special studies. Examples and sources of free or inexpensive materials that could be used in such centers are provided. The contract teaching method provides possibilities for student-teacher interaction and independent study. The method is described, types of contracts are explained, and sample contracts provided. Drawings and charts accompany the text. (Author/MLF)
