"This book trains the teacher to meet two of his chief problems: (1) How to make use of the instinctive tendencies of the child to give him a well-rounded education; (2) How to minimize the effects of all tendencies that obstruct correct learning. This book organizes, describes, and evaluates modern trends in education in the light of psychology and of standards, gives special emphasis to the objectives of education, and studies the specific practices by which these objectives are reached. It presents concretely the problems faced by the teacher, and helps the latter to solve these problems. In general, it covers: (1) A survey of the backgrounds of education as generally accepted; and (2) An exposition and analysis of current ways of teaching. The book clarifies the relation between theory and practice by means of a concrete exposition of the backgrounds of teaching. It shows the relationship among the various teaching techniques, and presents a critique of their respective values"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).

Each summer since 1990, a select group of Pennsylvania high school students has taken part in the Pennsylvania Governor's School for Teaching (PGST), held at Millersville University. The school is dedicated solely to the profession of teaching and brings together sophomores and juniors who have expressed an interest in teaching as a career. This volume describes the first two years of PGST--its goals, program, and achievements. The following topics are covered: (1) evolution of the PGST including its rationale and funding information; (2) student recruitment and selection; (3) structure and staffing of the program--resident life counselors, support staff, special presenters, and the cooperative model of staff development; (4) program highlights, including reflective journals, teaching in the school-within-a-school, multicultural experiences, learning theories, teacher/learner pairs--action research, a model school project, and leadership projects; and (5) program evaluation by everyone involved in PGST (64 students, 22 staff, 16 Advisory Council members, 79 parents, and 30 mentor teachers in the students' home districts).
