One Viewpoint on Preparing Teachers of Remedial Reading.
Marksheffel, Ned D.
Educational preparation of remedial reading teachers is often inadequate and confusing to the student due to the limited acquaintance with a variety of methods and techniques, failure of teachers to define their terms, and the limited number of actual reading courses offered students. In order to remedy this situation, the Remedial Reading Program at Oregon State University emphasizes one approach to teaching and evaluation methods in preparing remedial reading teachers at the Master's level. Emphasis is given to the development of a basic foundation group of transferable skills, techniques, and concepts of reading. The use of the Informal Reading Inventory as the basic diagnostic and evaluative instrument; the directed reading lesson, which can be applied to almost any learning activity; and the Fernald-Keller technique for pupils with word-learning problems are taught. Students are required to complete 18 quarter hours of reading courses, 9 hours of which are clinical practicum. References are included. (DH)
