Training Faculty for Junior College Reading Programs.
Kazmierski, Paul R.
This is the final topical paper in a series for reading specialists. Others in the series include: Number 18, Directions for Research and Innovation in Junior College Reading Programs; Number 20, Skill Development in Junior College Reading Programs; Number 21, Community College Reading Center Facilities; and Number 23, Exemplary Practices in Junior College Reading Instruction. A failure of junior college reading programs is reported, caused in part by inadequately trained and/or unenthusiastic teachers. The background, experience, duties, and responsibilities of present faculty are reviewed. Suggestions are offered for the improvement of junior college teacher preparation programs, notably in reading instruction. Recommendations are made to: (1) visit and study the community college reading programs in operation; (2) formulate plans for realistic training programs at the master's and doctoral level; and (3) initiate these programs and continually re-evaluate their relevance.
