Supervision of Reading Instruction in Junior High School.
McCracken, Robert A., Ed.
The major objective of this program was to improve the teaching performance of 20 junior high school teachers assigned to teach developmental reading as part of their class assignment. The program included a 7-week summer training portion and an academic school year of supervised teaching of developmental reading. The summer program included four college courses concerned with individualized reading instruction, improvement of reading instruction in the secondary school, observation and practicum in teaching reading at the junior-high level, and a seminar in reading education. During the academic year, monthly seminars were given for the 20 teachers participating in the program as well as guidance by two college supervisors and four other reading experts. Included in this report are (1) summaries of the four summer courses, (2) participant reports of activities in the teaching of reading, (3) a summary of participant evaluations, (4) evaluator reports, and (5) the director's summary. Appended are a participant evaluation questionnaire with a summary of responses and a checklist of teaching activities. (DE)
