Teaching Centers: Toward the State of the Scene.
Schmieder, Allen A.; Yarger, Sam J.
This monograph is intended to: (a) outline the background and current extent of teacher centering in the U.S., (b) stimulate intercenter communication, (c) identify resources for potential program developers, (d) raise some developmental problems and issues confronting center builders, and (e) provide a framework for a systematic analysis of the nature and promise of the teaching center concept. After a brief discussion of the problems of naming these projects, the authors identify some roots of the movement and analyze the extent and nature of teaching centers, using a survey conducted by Syracuse University. Eighteen selected summary tables from that survey are included. A typology of teaching centers identifies seven organizational types and four functional types. Five major issues for center developers are listed, followed by 25 questions arising from them. Current resources listed include 14 national programs and 46 exemplary centers. There is a 152-item bibliography. (LP)
