Inservice Education Programs for Public School Teachers.
Ward, Byron J.
Inservice education programs for public school teachers are needed for these, among other, reasons: (1) to provide teachers with preparation for teaching reading since this often not done by colleges and universities and is often not required for state department certification; (2) to help teachers keep abreast of the latest research in the field of reading; and (3) to help teachers evaluate the vast amount of new materials available. The paramount consideration in providing an effective inservice education program is the teachers for whom it is established. Therefore, meeting times, selections of topics to be covered, and methods used to present these topics should be decided with teachers in mind if the program is to meet their needs. Inservice programs can be conducted by the inservice educator employed by the school system or by university personnel obtained on a consultant basis. One reference is noted. (MD)
