this point, be asking ourselves
questions like 'What are we

Experience" was the topic for a
display of learning centers for
reading instruction held on
Tuesday, March 13 at Capitol
The display, which exhibited
eighty-five different learning
centers, was prepared by the
students of Dr. Dolores A.
Zoldos, Assistant Professor of
Education. All learning centers
were designed and constructed
by the students of the university
as part of their preservice
training in teacher education.
Educators from the surrounding
school districts were invited to
attend the display. Over 150
teachers and administrators
viewed the exhibit.
The use of learning centers is
a concept in aiding children to
reinforce skills in all areas of
reading. This method is an
attempt to intertwine the
convential teaching approach
with a newer concept of greater
student involvement in a
learning task. In doing so, the
students make their task more
enjoyable by the increased
freedom in working in areas of

Michigan. "These are thorough,
on-going programs that relate to
the community. We've reverted
almost to isolationism. There is
no reason why the business
program shouldn't develop
programs on tax structures, or
why a sociology teacher couldn't
organize a community power
structure study and publish it.
This could even be done with
the help of students. We must
contribute to the community
and make people realize some of
the injustices that are being done
Mr. Berger has an interesting,
diversified background to draw
upon for his experiences here at
Capitol. In the past, he has been
in this alternative to the
traditional concept. The learning
center will be used by the
students during their junior year
class observation, student
teaching, and hopefully, when
they are employed full time.
Dr. Zoldos 'stated that the
goals of today's elementary
school are greater
and personalization of
instruction. Using the learning
center concept will aid today's
teacher in achieving these goals.
Dr. Zoldos added that although
this display was in the area of
reading instruction, learning
centers can be implemented in
all areas of education
curriculum. "Capitol Campus is
very proud to be able to present
the work of the education
students with a display such as
this," Dr. Zoldos commented.

playwright, poet, teacher, and
director of drama. Most recently
he was an Associate Professor of
English at West Chester State
College. He holds an A.B. in
History from Oberlin College
(1953), a S.T.B. - M.th. from
Episcopal Theological School
(1956), a S.T.M. in Theology
and Drama from the Union
Theological Seminary (1965), a
M.F.A. in. Drama from
Carnegie-Mellon (1969), and has
almost completed his work for
his Ph.D. and expects to receive
it very shortly.
Before going to West Chester,
Mr. Berger held the position of
Associate Rector and
Priest-in-Charge at the Trinity
Church in Swarthmore, Pa.
When asked why he left the
church, he replied, "Churches
have lost their sense of vital
contributions to community
changes, growth, etc. They no
longer seem themselves as
leaders, but as protectors. I find
it difficult to relate to this."
Mr. Berger has been married
to the former Josephine Norton

with their five children,
Marguerite (16), Mary (15),
Susan (13), Jere,Jr.(ll), and
Randall (9) in the Hershey area.
"It's a place of great diversity
with a large rural element.
However, only a minority of
people are interested in cultural
development and enrichment.
There is a lack of sense of

that does exist because of the

This wear's tough schedule
demands a winning attitude in
