Evaluation of Teacher Education Programs in Reading; A Proposed Checklist.
Ransom, Grayce A., Ed.
This sample checklist for teacher education programs in reading is intended to aid colleges and universities in self-evaluation and to aid others rating an institution's teacher-training activities in the area of reading. The checklist specifies the different program modules in the education of reading specialists. The competencies designated for all of the program modules constitute a checklist of a program's strengths and weaknesses. The checklist is flexible enough to be adapted to a variety of programs. It has also been designed to aid "outside" evaluation as well as self-evaluation of programs. Reading teachers, teacher-trainers, prospective reading teachers, and administrators of reading programs may use this list to evaluate the competence of their work in preservice and inservice activities. People in fields tangential to reading education may also use the list to gain an overview of this subject. (Author/DI)
