Classroom Craftsmen; Report of a Planning Conference for the NIE Planning Unit.
Dupuis, Mary M., Ed.; Mitzel, Harold E., Ed.
This document is a report of a 1971 planning conference for the National Institute of Education planning unit. Three major themes were developed. The first theme indicated the need for the formation of teacher centers to meet the needs of teachers, suggest new options, couple teachers with available resources, and in doing so reinforce the notion that to be teaching one must also be learning. Emphasis was placed on the availability of resources to document the art of the craftsman and quality in education while sharpening an understanding of the art, improving the ability to communicate it, and gaining insight into the learning process as it occurs under the guidance of the craftsman. The development of a coupling between research and the classroom craftsman's intuitive use of his art is also stressed. (MJM)
