Administering the School Reading Program.
Otto, Wayne; Smith, Richard J.
Part 1 of a book for administrators and teachers is devoted to an overview of the school reading program: its focus and scope, its component skills and their development, and its relationship to the other language arts. The emphasis is not on the specifics of instruction but on providing a framework within which efficient reading instruction can be effected. Part 2 discusses aspects of a school program that need consideration if improved reading instruction is to result. Scheduling, materials, evaluation, public relations, and roles of specialized personnel are discussed. In addition, suggestions for inservice training programs are made, and 17 model inservice programs are described. References are included for each chapter. (WB)
