A Model for Preservice Education of Secondary Reading Teachers.
Weiss, M. Jerry
This article is based on the premise that any preservice education program for secondary reading teachers is a must today in the field of teacher education. If everyone is to be able to read in the 70's, teachers must become more innovative and responsible as they develop the skills and attitudes for change within the schools of the times. Flexibility, creativity, and resourcefulness must be part of each teacher's makeup. The solutions to problems in the schools lie in a close examination of the complex nature of the reading process, reflecting an interdisciplinary approach and including an analysis of materials and methods useful for diagnostic and immediate followup activities. A description of a preservice education model for secondary reading teachers is divided into three areas: How does a reading teacher help secondary teachers understand what reading is all about? How does the reading teacher help his teachers know about the different abilities of students? And what methods and materials can be used by secondary school teachers to provide for the many differences in their classes? References are included. (NH)
