Adam Robertson interview

RECORDED: Creston (B.C.), 1980-10-30 SUMMARY: Teacher at Sirdar school from 1932 to 1934. An experienced school teacher, he recalls his early teaching years in the East Kootenays. Found situations which later helped him to bring in innovations when he was a supervising principal (grouping, open space, etc.). A very philosophical and idealistic tape. He has obviously been a very dedicated teacher and was recognized by having a school named after him in Creston. He regrets the passing of the one room school. Thoughtful material which would be useful and inspiring to beginning teachers.
