Teachers' Centres: A Report Based on the Literature.
Berg, Donna Lee
This report focuses on the British concept of teachers' centers. Emphasis has been placed on the literature that analyzes the effect of political, social, economic, and cultural factors on the development of centers. Part 1 of the report discusses British teachers' centers in some detail. Part 2 presents an overview of United States centers set up as a result of American educators' enthusiastic acceptance of the British concept. This section attempts to highlight the differences in implementation of the basic philosophy within a totally different educational environment. In part 3, British and American centers are jointly discussed in relation to certain aspects that involve either common concerns or demonstrate the differences in attitude between the two nations concerning evaluation and research, curriculum development, inservice training, and the future of centers. Ontario's limited involvement with teachers' centers is discussed in part 3 and a brief commentary is made on the province's educational policy, particularly as it relates to curriculum. (Author/MLF)
