Revolution in Teacher Education for Reading Instruction.
Ramsey, Wallace
The past preoccupation of reading teacher education with how reading should be taught to the exclusion of immersing students in the process of teaching reading has reaped resentment toward neophyte teachers' ignorance of reading materials, approaches, and techniques already established in schools. Changes in that perspective of reading teacher education are evident in several movements: (1) the conception and implementation of performance based training, (2) adjustments to individual differences among prospective teachers via instructional modules, (3) greater involvement of preservice teachers in classroom observation and tutoring, (4) replacement of large classrooms with learning centers containing multimedia stations for individual students, (5) decline in the use of the single methods textbook, and (6) reliance upon a team of reading specialists each member of which possesses considerable versatility as a teacher educator.
