Summary

This monograph is one of a continuing series initiated to provide materials for teachers, parents, school administrators, and governmental decision-makers that might encourage reexamination of a range of evaluation issues and perspectives about schools and schooling. This monograph is a descriptive study of the Teacher Curriculum Work Center, which opened in October 1972. It tries to capture the way of life of one functioning teacher center by exploring the viewpoints of various participants. The findings of the study are organized around the following topics, which head each of the eight chapters: (1) History; (2) Philosophy; (3) Setting/Environment; (4) People Who Use the Center; (5) Organizational Structure; (6) Program Highlights; (7) Teacher Behavior in the Center; and (8) Major Themes. Most of the empirical results are drawn from three sources: (1) sign-in/out forms; (2) personal data sheets filled out by visitors; and (3) observational data. In addition all the Centers' written records were reviewed and taped interviews conducted with the staff. The chapters are preceded by an introduction and followed by appendixes that include: a sample of personal background forms; a map of schools the Center draws from; a sample of the Center newsletter; a list of workshop topics; a sample of sign-in forms; a sample of the observation form: and a bibliography.
