Color and Spirit.
Christensen, Jane
The best learning environment is one in which the curriculum meets student needs, and in which the teachers receive both emotional and administrative support. A program to assist teachers in keeping up with the profession should include provision of a sense of personal renewal, continued confidence in abilities, and new developments in various fields of study. This can be provided on local, regional, and national levels through diverse methods: visiting scholars, research in troublesome areas, master teachers, curriculum research done by teachers, and collegiate education departments serving as teacher centers. Resulting teacher improvement will lead to the meeting of student needs: ability to concentrate and be interested; ability to express oneself orally or in writing; ability to cope with inner and outer change; and the ability to choose and practice values.
