Inservice Teacher Training in Reading.
Moburg, Lawrence G.
This summary and evaluation of the research published from 1963 to 1970 deals with inservice teacher training in reading. The major focus is on a review of the research on what types of inservice education are needed and are most effective. Investigations conducted recommend that inservice programs be based on the current needs of teachers. However, no evidence in the surveys reviewed demonstrated that they were based on the needs of teachers. It was concluded that the most effective inservice programs took place before the opening of school followed by group meetings and individual conferences during the school year. A synthesis of the research findings indicates the weaknesses in design, procedures, measurement, and data collection. Recommendations concerning further research include: providing more complete information relating to samples, methods, materials, and instruments; utilizing a variety of evaluation techniques; and stating the limitations of the study. Recommended areas for further research include research assessing the needs of teachers and basing programs on those needs and research to include secondary school programs. (TB)
