Essays on Teachers' Centers.
Devaney, Kathleen, Ed.
This collection of essays on teacher centers reports the thinking of teachers' centers participants and leaders as they endeavor to improve, sustain, and extend their programs. While the function of teacher centers is, in a broad sense, to encourage teachers to continue to grow in their profession and remain open to new educational innovations, these essays enlarge on this theme with personal approaches to basic problems commonly faced by teachers. The value of sharing ideas and experiences with others in the same profession is underscored in this collection. The effect of teachers' centers in increasing self-esteem, confidence, and willingness to seek and share advice emerges as one of their major contributions to improving teacher performance. (JD)
