Summary

This two-part monograph attempts to (a) define and describe the teacher center concept, and (b) expand existing informal communication exchanges among teacher centers and teaching colleagues in school districts and colleges of education. Information was elicited from 40 American teacher centers, as well as from people and projects interested in teacher centers as an alternative form of continuing education for practicing teachers. Part 1, "Mapping New Territory," is an essay which describes the exploration of the informal communication network among teacher centers and presents the issues surrounding the centers, mainly from the perspective of people within the centers. Part 2, "Describing Centers," is a collection of 22 descriptions of teacher centers that highlights each center's uniqueness in style, purposes, programs, governance, and setting. An appendix consisting of a list of teacher centers and advisories interviewed during the course of the study is included. (Author/JS)
