Teacher Center Leaders: In the Vanguard of Third Wave People. Final Report.
Hockman, Elaine; And Others
A summary is presented of the findings from a survey conducted by the American Federation of Teachers-Teacher Center Resource Exchange (AFT-TCRE) to obtain information on the importance and relevance of its publications. Questionnaires were sent to 72 federal teacher center directors and achieved a return rate of 81 percent. The questionnaire sought to determine if teacher center personnel found AFT-TCRE publications to be of value and how these materials have been used and shared. Responses on publications, including a directory, brief current issues summaries, USDE and congressional releases, a newspaper, a series of "how to" publications, and publications on the handicapped, are displayed in tabular form. The publications identified as most valuable by the respondents are discussed, with a brief description of the contents. Information is also provided on responses to media productions available on loan from AFT-TCRE. Comments from teacher center directors on technical assistance they have received from the exchange are included. (JD)
