The Indiana Plan for Reformulating the Education of Reading Teachers.
Fay, Leo
A decision to change Indiana teacher certification requirements to include 6 semester hours of preparation in teaching reading produced a need for increased reading courses in all of the state's teacher education programs. This conference paper reports the means used to develop such a program. Initially all 23 Indiana colleges with teacher education programs were to take part, but gradually the project centered around Indiana University and Ball State University reading and instructional development faculties. It was hoped that planners of the program could view the task from the points of view of the learner's needs and the teacher's task in directing learning. Six design teams were established to consider learner characteristics, overview of the program, behavioral objectives, word study, comprehension, and approaches to instruction. Although the project did not follow exactly the original plans, it will produce a program by the fall semester, 1971. (MS)
