The Preparation of Teachers to Teach Reading and Associated Language Skills.
Queensland Board of Teacher Education, Toowong (Australia).
A study to evaluate the Queensland, Australia, programs of teacher education in reading and those associated language skills prerequisite to reading is described in this booklet. The first section reports the results of a survey of 267 beginning teachers, 47 college instructors in teacher education, 44 school administrators, and 205 supervising teachers to elicit their perceptions of the state of teacher preparation and concludes with a list of topics for further research. The second section presents the proceedings of a conference of the Queensland board of teacher education that recommended the following as a follow-up to the survey: (1) there should be a closer working relationship between schools and teacher training institutions in the preparation of teachers for the teaching of reading, and (2) training in the teaching of reading should be regarded as a continuous process throughout a teacher's career. The third section lists the course outlines offered in the teaching of reading and associated skills by ten Queensland teacher training institutions. Appendixes present survey information, including samples of the questionnaires. (AEA)
