Critical Issues in Reading Instruction Among Black Teachers and Students: Personnel and Training.
Vick, Marian Lee
Research studies agree that the teacher, above any other factor, is the key to successful reading instruction. Therefore, in order to improve reading achievement of pupils in any ethnic group, one should look first at the teacher, paraprofessional, tutor or volunteer and his training. New developments such as microteaching, self-analysis of one's own recorded teaching, pre- and in-service training, and competency based models for training reading teachers seem promising; also encouraging are the training programs for paraprofessionals promoted and fostered by national reading organizations. The final crucial concern is that teachers of reading evidence creativity, imagination, flexibility, and a sensitivity to children. (AW/MF)
