Teacher Centers and Advisory Work. A Panel Discussion.
Apelman, Maja; And Others
Highlights of a panel discussion on advisory work and how it relates to teacher centers and inservice education programs are contained in this transcript. The role of an advisor in a teacher center is to act as a helper, counselor, confidant, and supportive professional to teachers who seek their services. An important function of the advisor is to provide linkage between the theory of inservice study and the realistic world of school teaching. Advisors are, as a rule, individuals with special talents and experience in the classroom. This panel discussion focuses on the relationship between teachers and advisors, methods of operating, and typical problems in the classroom and ways of solving those problems. (JD)
