The Learning Center is available to professors and students who are interested in learning how to develop their own Learning Center. 'Hands-on' approach taught at center by Amy Minnoch Staff Reporter Hands off? No, in this case it is "hands-on" for Dr. Richard Blake and the education department. The hands-on method of teaching is a learning experience that deals with real, visible objects made for learners of all ages. This technique is just one of many the Teacher Education Progam's Learning Center utilizes. The Learning Center is in a period of opening thru May. The "hands-on" method of teaching deals aptly with student participation; especially for children in elementary schools. It is, however, used in secondary education and at college levels. "For instance, I became a mathematics major because of a fun math display and project that I was involved in as a student," Dr. Blake said. The Learning Center is a beneficial system designed for every academic level. Dr. Blake explains; "The Learning Center here at WSC is a place to train teachers, prospective teachers and even parents on how to set up a learning center of their own." Dr. Blake feels that many learning centers have failed in the past because of lack of organization and the fact that teachers become too easily discouraged. The Learning Center at WSC goes through six different basic steps to help instructors develop successful learning centers of their own. "Management skills are essential to the success of any kind of learning center. In the end it will be very useful to teachers, for it occupies children in meaningful ways with meaningful studies. It can free up the teacher so he can work with children who really need help on an individual level." The education faculty advocates the "hands-on" method of learning for a number of reasons. "It deals with more touching, feeling and exploring. They (students) will begin to enjoy school more because they are personalized and involved in the entire process of learning." Dr. Blake has had experience in teaching at both elementary and secondary levels of education. He v feels the Learning Center "represents a real team effort on the part of many, including education students and instructors, as well as public school teachers." The Learning Center was established under the collaborative efforts of Dr. Blake, Assistant Director Shelly Tribe, the Instructional Development Department, WSCUSU masters program, the school of education and the teacher education department. Women still want romance, convo audience told by Joan Calvert Staff Reporter What is it about men that women consider to be their sexiest attribute? According to the author of How to Make Love to a Woman, the overwhelming answer is the eyes. Michael Morgenstern, author of How to Make Love to a Woman addressed the topic of "Romance" in Thurday's convocation." Morgenstern, who is a lawyer, got the idea for his book from an experience that happened to him while he was taking a female associate, whom he was quite interested in, to lunch at the Bar Association in Chicago. Moregenstern said when he tried to help "Lisa" with her chair at the restaurant, she made quite a scene that quieted down the entire restaurant, exclaiming that she could manage by herself, she then left the restaurant quite upset. From this episode Morgenstern began wondering what it is that today's women really want. Do they want to have car doors opened for them and all of the other niceties or would they like to be left on their own? Morgenstern stated that he did his research for the book by interviewing many women. His conclusions were that women still want to be romanced. They still want the men to open the car door for them, help them with their coat and perform other common social graces. He stressed however, that romance is an attitude that most of us have forgotten about and because of the women's movement, men are afraid to be romantic. Morgenstern pointed out that women are talking to women and expressing their need for romance, but women and men aren't talking to each other. Men are reading Playboy and Penthouse and getting ideas about romance and making love from those magazines, Morgenstern said. "We have come to the age of sexual athletics, everyone feeling that they have to perform." Morgenstern said in our culture the men are ready to hop in bed and go for it. While men may thing that that behavior is what women want, they really would like to take things slow and be romanced along the way, Morgenstern said. Morgenstern stated that in the fifties the only sexual experience a woman was supposed to have was to get pregnant. The woman's movement and sexual revolution have since changed this and women are looking for better sexual experiences. He said that the demand for women's equality over the past ten years has brought about the idea that no consideration should be given either way. Morgenstern feels a little more consideration should be given from the woman as well as from the man. Morgenstern said men are lagging behind women in knowing what women want. That was his basic purpose for writing the book. Morgenstern concluded from this that for every "Lisa" there is in the world, there are ten other women out there who are dying for some romance in their lives.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
