Evaluating the Teacher Center Pilots: The Third Annual Report, 1974-1975. Volume 1, Summary.
Steinmetz, Andres; Siegel, Jane
Through an overview of three teacher centers, this report attempts to characterize what a teacher center is, does, and how it can be organized. The centers included in this report are the following: (a) the Bay Area Learning Center (BALC), California; (b) the Rhode Island Teacher Center (RITC); and (c) the Texas Center for the Improvement of Educational Systems (TCIES). Part 1 traces the evolution of the three pilot teacher centers, describes center activities, and generalizes teacher center functions. Part 2 contrasts certain functions of each pilot, and comments on some of the results and successes as well as some of the problems surrounding their origins. The appendix gives an overview of (a) the first eighteen months of BALC and RITC, (b) the first two years of TCIES, and (c) the impact and status of selected project components in 1973-74 and 1974-75. These histories of the three pilots present events thought significant to the teacher center functions and are pertinant to the following topics: (a) the federal role or posture in the program, (b) program planning and the institutionalization of change, and (c) parity.
