Diederich, Paul B.
This bulletin is a digest and interpretation of some of the main findings reported in Chapter V, "Nature and Extent of Current Practices in Educating Those Who Teach Reading," by J. Richard Harsh in "The Information Base for Reading: A Critical Review of the Information Base for Current Assumptions Regarding the Status of Instruction and Achievement in Reading in the United States," the final report of a study for the U. S. Office of Education, see ED 054 922. Documents published between 1960 and 1970 were surveyed, and answers to questions concerning the preparation and selection of reading teachers, the state education code directives for the teaching of reading, the state certification requirements for reading teachers and specialists, school districts' requirements for preparation of reading teachers, and the relationship between teacher preparation, teacher characteristics and student reading achievement were sought. The answers to these questions are summarized. (For related documents, see TM 002 357-358.) (DB)
