Essential Reading Content for Elementary Education Students at the Baccalaureate Level.
McNealy, Joavenell McCoy
The purpose of this study was to determine essential reading content in college preparatory programs for elementary education students at the baccalaureate level. In the development of the content for the reading courses, attention was given to various sources--descriptions taken from college catalogs, statements of goals and the principles of reading instruction suggested by reading authorities, and the problems and instructional needs of teachers of reading. Data gathered for this problem were organized into fourteen categories, each of which was then described as a course to be used in the proposed reading curriculum. These courses were evaluated by a jury of reading experts, and an eight-course Pre-Service Reading Curriculum was developed and endorsed by 92 percent of both the county supervisors and the elementary teachers to whom it was sent. Eight recommendations were made concerning how colleges might implement this new curriculum so that a successful reading program incorporating the competencies included in these eight courses could be established.
