Boston, Bedford D., Ed.; Kingsford, Steve, Ed.

Included are reports from: (1) Bethel-Eugene-Springfield Teacher Center (Eugene, Oregon); (2) Franklin County Teacher Center (Columbus, Ohio); (3) Northwest Mississippi Teacher Center (Senatobia); (4) Pittsburgh Area Center for Teachers (Pennsylvania); (5) Project RISE (Regional In-Service Education), (Clochester, Connecticut); (6) School Resource Network (Ventura, California); (7) Southeast Idaho Teacher Center Consortium (Twin Falls); (8) Southern New Jersey Regional Teacher Center (Glassboro); (9) Southern Piedmont Educational Consortium Teacher Center (Albemarle, North Carolina); (10) TRIAD Teacher Center (West Lafayette, Indiana); (11) Washington West Resource Center (Waitsfield, Vermont); and (12) Wood County Area Teacher Center (Bowling Green, Ohio).
