The Relative Effectiveness of Two Methods of In-Service Education in Reading.
Berck, Lee Feiman
The relative effectiveness of two methods of in-service education in reading was tested in order to provide guidelines for future organization and implementation of in-service courses. The methods tested were in-service education in reading emphasizing participation under both supervision and lecture-discussion (P-S), and in-service education in reading emphasizing a lecture-discussion format alone (L-D). The format for the P-S group consisted of nine sessions of lecture-discussion and six sessions of participation with children under the supervision of the chief investigator or an assistant. Opportunity for self-analysis and feedback was provided by the use of videotape. The format for the L-D group consisted of fifteen sessions of lecture-discussion alone. In addition, the teachers in this group were scheduled to videotape a lesson of their choice on six separate occasions within the period in which the course was given. Results of this study seem to indicate that classroom practice is influenced not so much by in-service education in general as by specific components such as involvement by means of high experience impact activities and immediate feedback.
