Practices of Teaching Reading by English Teachers in the Junior High Schools of Independent School District No. 1, Tulsa County, Oklahoma.
Baranoff, Elizabeth S.
This study surveyed the practices of teaching reading by English teachers in the 21 Tulsa public junior high schools by means of a 49 item questionnaire distributed to all teachers whose major assignment was English. Questions covered eight aspects of reading instruction: (1) diagnosis of reading ability; (2) provisions for helping retarded readers; (3) development of vocabulary; (4) materials for reading; (5) promotion of interest and taste in reading; (6) instruction for reading nonliterary material; (7) instruction for reading literature; and (8) development of oral reading, speed skills, and creative activities based on reading. Analysis of the results showed that the English teachers were teaching reading to some extent and generally followed prescribed methods for so doing. However, systematic and deliberate teaching of reading was not practiced in most of the respondents' classroom nor did the teachers see reading in the broad communication sense needed to promote necessary growth in all reading skills. The questionnaire and the percentage of respondents for each item choice are in the appendix. (Author/TO)
