Inductive Concepts of Teacher Education--The Undergraduate Reading Methods Course.
Manning, John C.
An inductive reading methods course was offered to 30 junior elementary education students at the University of Minnesota in 1966. Course objectives and procedures were planned with cooperating public school personnel. As preparation for tutoring, the university students were instructed in methods of informal reading diagnosis and in the compilation of necessary materials. Under the supervision of the course instructor, the student teachers conducted individual tutoring sessions with 30 remedial reading students. Critical discussions of instructional problems followed. Under the cooperative supervision of the elementary principal, the cooperating teacher, and the course instructor, the university students conducted group reading instruction. It was concluded that clearer communication should be established between methods course instructors and cooperating school personnel. College students should be provided a more extensive and diversified program for reading methods. Student teachers should have some monetary provision for purchasing necessary teaching materials, and transportation to and from teaching centers should be furnished. (BS)
