The Role of the Language Arts Supervisor in Developing English and Reading Programs.
Sheldon, William D.
State Supervisors should use their influence to develop the English and reading programs in their states. They can improve the quality of instruction by (1) insuring the competency of reading teachers and specialists in their schools by requiring a minimum number of essential courses for beginning teachers and reading specialists; (2) developing the K-12 concept of reading instruction in the schools, especially through state education activities; (3) increasing the number of demonstration schools and classes for developing and trying out new teaching methods, materials, and administrative procedures; (4) encouraging pilot studies of new methods and materials before they are instituted into the curriculum; and (5) disseminating current information as quickly as possible to all teachers and supervisors in the field.
