Teacher-Centered, Learner-Centered or All of the Above

This is an blog article in which the author reports her reactions to an interview of Parker Palmer who wrote, The Courage to Teach.  In the article, the author suggests that being teacher-centered or learner-centered is actually a continuum.  She concludes, 'It is time for us to start addressing the more complex and interesting task of joining together teacher-centered and learner-centered instruction. The question for those who aspire to be learner-centered is not how to abandon lectures, but to understand when “teaching by telling” effectively advances the learning agenda. Learner-centered teachers should not leave students to muddle through on their own.'

Try again, Brenda. It is working now. May have been a temporary thing.
