Tried & Tested. Ideas from Teacher Centers in the Southeast.
Bohstedt, Jinx, Ed.; Eisenmann-Donahue, Pat, Ed.
Throughout the southeastern United States, teacher centers share much in common. The conceptual framework of teachers helping teachers inspires the development of resources and services which are similar whether the center serves a large district or only a few schools. Although the teacher centers share similar philosophies, concerns, successes, and impact, this collection highlights the diversities of 20 centers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. The notes given here report a single exemplary practice from each center, useful for others to try and test. Practices described include: (1) utilization of research; (2) visiting clinical professors; (3) help for new teachers; (4) incentives for the development of innovations or improvement in practice; (5) use of media in the classroom; (6) development of handbooks and guides for teachers; (7) involvement of parents; and (8) a study trip to Europe.
