Improving the Junior College Reading Programs.
Tremonti, Joseph B.
The administrator's role in establishing a sound junior college reading program is discussed. He is warned against the unthoughtful adoption of reading innovations, the hiring of unqualified teachers, and an inadequate supply of reading materials. Effective inservice training programs, a concerned reading committee, and adequate library facilities are recommended. Administrative enthusiasm for the reading program, close communication between the administration and teachers, and opportunities for professional growth are also emphasized. Administrators are urged to become acquainted with the methods of teaching reading and the various types of reading programs, materials, and techniques available; to provide consultant services and secretarial help for teachers; to supply the necessary reading materials and equipment; and to arrange for adequate teaching space and time. Effective administrative leadership is seen as resulting in a constant and enriched reading and learning atmosphere for junior college students. (RT)
