The Preparation of Reading Teachers.
Olson, James H.
Difficulties encountered and insights gained while designing, implementing, and evaluating a preservice reading methods course at the University of Minnesota are presented. An analogy is drawn between the university teacher training program and the elementary school reading program. Both are seen to include planning, teaching, evaluating, and reteaching. Large group lectures, small group seminars, and actual classroom teaching experience make up the methods course. Background information, theory, and technical knowledge are presented in the lectures. Seminars involve discussions of significant issues encountered in lectures and assigned readings and of problems arising in the classroom. Instruction, diagnosis, and remediation are the major elements that form the core around which the classroom experience is designed. Emphasis is placed on the cooperation of the methods teacher and public school personnel in planning, executing, and evaluating the methods program. (RT)
