ISA Bulletin Special Workshop Report Edition No. 76. "Will Your Teaching Survive the Seventies?"
Campbell, A. D., Comp.
This is a report of the first teachers' inservice training workshop sponsored by the International Schools Association. It begins with some introductory statements concerning the workshop and its theme--"Will your teaching survive the seventies?" It also indicated in these introductory remarks that the workshop was intended as a conference concerned with new educational thinking in Britain and the United States, and also as an interdisciplinary experience for the participants. The next part of the report presents summaries of the talks by the principal speakers. The summaries have been subjectively reported by the compiler and are not pure transcriptions. The speakers' topics included (1) the need for humaness in all educational development; (2) community living; (3) the need for a greater "exactness" in approaches to learning; (4) the philosophical nature of the educational process; (5) the importance of a properly organized school situation; (6) the organization planning, self-questioning, and honesty required in teaching mathematics; (7) and "survival techniques" for teaching in the seventies. The summaries of these talks are followed by a brief summary of other talks and discussion groups. Annexes to the report comprise the next part, and include bibliographies, additional reports, and other sources of information. (RC)
