Expanding Practices in Secondary Reading In-Service Programs.
Williams, Richard P.
The expansion of developmental reading programs into the secondary grades requires qualified and trained secondary reading teachers . This need is presently being met by local school districts through the operation of inservice training programs. The following observations of these programs are reported: (1) the secondary reading program is now advancing as rapidly as the elementary program, (2) local school districts state their own needs and problems and establish their own goals for inservice programs held in cooperation with a university, (3) more personnel and specialists are being involved in team programs, (4) continuous total staff programs are replacing 1-day seminars and teacher inservice programs, (5) regional and national inservice programs involve specialists across the nation, and (6) program content is moving away from reading instructional techniques toward a consideration of the total learning process. The inservice programs of New Mexico State University and Las Cruces Public Schools, New Mexico, are cited. (NS)
