Teacher Centers and Inservice Education. Fastback No. 71.
Bell, Harry H., Jr.; Peightel, John W.
This short pamphlet discusses the use of teacher centers to provide inservice education as a mechanism of change in American education. It begins by examining what teachers expect from inservice education and from teacher centers. It then looks at the teacher center movement in the United States and explores its historical roots. The different types of teacher centers are described and examples are given of each type. These include consortium centers, partnership centers, autonomous centers, and special focus centers. The financing and governing of teacher centers--two problems faced in establishing and supporting teacher centers--are also discussed. A problems analysis of teacher centered inservice instruction is presented along with a representative list of teacher centers. (DT)
