The Role of the Reading Resource Teacher.
Smith, Richard J.
The reading resource teacher program established in the Madison, Wisconsin, Public Schools is described. Volunteer classroom teachers were given 20 hours of special training in reading and one-half day a week released time to assist their principals in reading curriculum development. Such consideration as cost, teacher-ability differences, staff acceptance, and additional training programs are discussed. Because each principal utilizes the services of the reading resource teacher according to the reading curriculum needs of his school, the roles differ among the participating schools. The various roles described include acting as a liaison person with central office consultants, establishing tutorial programs, providing diagnostic services, purchasing instructional reading materials, supporting the classroom teacher, providing specialized teaching, and serving on curriculum committees.
