The Effect of Federal Fellowship and Institute Programs in Reading.
Dolan, Sister Mary Edward
The basic components of National Defense Education Act (NDEA) Institutes and Experienced Teacher Fellowship Programs in Reading are discussed; their contributions to the teaching of reading are evaluated. Their curriculums center around core reading courses, substantive content, and supervised experiences with children. Working with the programs are instructional and supervisory staff, teachers, scholars, and reading specialists who are selected on the basis of their potential contributions to the program. Constant evaluation is maintained. Specific programs are described in detail, and evaluation findings are noted. It is concluded that such programs are valuable assets to the teaching of reading. It is proposed that they be pilot programs for future graduate instruction. References and charts of specific evaluation data are included. (BS)
