Content Analyses of the Required Reading Courses for Prospective Secondary Teachers at Each of the Seven State Teacher Training Institutions of New Jersey.
Stefanelli, Anna Mae
A study was undertaken to analyze and compare the content of two reading courses required for all prospective secondary school teachers in each of the seven teacher training schools in New Jersey. A five-page questionnaire was sent to the director of the reading program or to a member of the reading program staff at each of the colleges. The questionnaire elicited information concerning materials and teaching techniques used in the courses and the types of assignments made. The results revealed that six of the institutions had developed reading courses especially for secondary education majors, and that one school had made no provisions for such students. Many similarities were found in the materials and teaching techniques used, with the majority of schools indicating that field work or observational experiences were rarely a part of the required courses.
