Workshops, In-Service Teacher Education, and the Eight-Year Study
Bullough, Robert V., Jr.; Kridel, Craig
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v19 n7 p665-679 Oct 2003
This essay explores the origins and practice of the "workshop" as a form of in-service teacher education developed during the Eight-Year Study (1933-1941) sponsored by the Progressive Education Association. The Eight-Year Study workshops offer important lessons for current educational reform as the authors call for greater attention to the history of teacher education. (Contains 1 note.)
