Teachers' Resource Centres.
Kahn, Harry
This report provides advice to those setting up or developing resource centers for teachers in widely differing social, economic and educational conditions, and is offered to teachers, administrators, and organizers of teachers' centers to assist them in their efforts to improve the quality of teaching in schools throughout the British Commonwealth. The report is divided into three sections: (1) the philosophy of teachers' resource centers; (2) the possible functions of a teachers' resource center, including ideas about professional development, support services for teachers, the acquisition, production, and distribution of teaching resources, social and recreational services for teachers, and a center for community involvement in education; and (3) management issues involved in the organization and administration of teachers' resource centers including objectives, location, accommodation, center management, program, staff, equipment, finance, day-to-day running of the center, and networking.
