Author:Tom O'Brien, ed.
Description: Throughout the 1980s, Seedbed published articles on "the intellectual growth of children, and teachers' participation therein." Editor Tom O'Brien described the publication as a practical one, "where teachers are the principal authors and where teachers' concerns are paramount.... where coal-face issues of teaching, rather than airy-fairy issues, are addressed." Frequent contents included math lessons, problems, puzzles, Piagetian observations, early ideas for implementing computers and reactions to educational technology in the classroom, children's artwork, book reviews, interviews, voices from abroad (China, Hungary, UK), and submissions by "scatterers." This archive of scanned images spans 40 back issues, disseminated from the Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville's Teachers' Center Project.
