Teachers' Centers Exchange Directory, 1980.
Lance, Jeanne; Piper, Barbara
This directory lists those American teacher centers that are in touch with the Teachers' Centers Exchange. All 116 entries in the directory are written in a common format. This is intended to help readers make comparisons and select individual ideas rather than to adopt whole models. Each listing is headed by the name, address, and phone number of the center, the name of its current director, and the hours it is normally in operation. A description of the program offered by the center is provided, presenting a profile of the center's activities, response to particular needs in the school and community, and in some cases a brief history of the founding of the center. Methods of needs assessment and evaluation used by the center are described, as well as the resources used and/or generated by the center. A description is given of the setting in which the center operates. Other information includes the characteristics of the participants, the center's decision-making process and governance, and the center's financial base and operation. (JD)
