The Resource Person in Elementary Teacher Education.
Styer, Sandra
A resource person in undergraduate education classes may promote insights into the challenges, successes, and frustrations associated with the development and implementation of elementary curriculum. Resource persons may come from the university, the public school system, or the service and business professions in the community. The direct benefits of the resource person include: (a) sharing unique, specialized knowledge and experiences; (b) sharing instructional media including audiovisual hardware and software, as well as published, teacher-designed, and teacher-constructed instructional materials; (c) sharing divergent philosophies; (d) providing possible role models; (e) identifying possible options and goals for future career growth; (f) stimulating a realistic approach to educational problems; and (g) providing simulations of selected professional situations. An indirect benefit resulting from the use of resource persons in the elementary education class is the improved relationship between the college or university and the institution to which the resource person belongs.
