Interpretation of the Reading Program to the Community.
Stahl, Betty Lou
The problems involved in explaining the school reading program to the community are discussed, and methods for effective communication are outlined. Mobility of the community population, disparity within programs and among educators, and confusion of educational terminology are seen as factors inhibiting communication. Methods of effective communication include staff talks to small groups, brochures describing the reading program, and indexes to special services. The importance of the teacher's role in communication and interpretation is emphasized, and steps in planning a demonstration lesson are outlined. Information necessary for parental understanding of reading instruction is discussed, and suggestions about reading for parents with school-age children are listed. Methods of reporting students' reading progress are outlined. Additional methods of communicating the goals and activities of the reading program include use of mass media and public relations techniques. (RT)
