Wallen, Carl J.; Wisely, Steven R.
The major focuses of this reading program survey were staff preparation, instructional techniques, educational materials, and pupil achievement. Data were obtained from 47 teachers (14 men and 33 women) who represented reading instruction in grades 1 through 8. The following items were analyzed in detail: personnel description (age, sex, and degree), courses taken in reading, teaching experience, class schedules, materials used, student achievement (using the Otis-Lennon Intelligence Test and the Stanford Achievement Test), class sizes, grouping practices, and correlation of subject areas to reading activities. The Instructional Skills in Reading Test was administered to 43 teachers, and observations concerning reading materials in the school district were made. Recommendations were made by the teaching staff and by the Bureau of Educational Research survey team of the University of Oregon College of Education, who conducted the survey. Extensive tables and figures are given. (DE)
