Developing Competency Based Teacher Education Resource Modules in Individualizing Instruction and Treatment of Special Reading Difficulties.
Stieglitz, Ezra Louis
The purposes of this study were (1) to develop and evaluate resource modules in the areas of treating reading difficulties and individualizing instruction to be used in a competency based teacher education program in reading and (2) to determine whether an instructional portion of the reading difficulties module could effectively be implemented in a field test situation. Advisory panels comprised of experts in the field of reading provided the inputs necessary for the development of the tentative and final forms of the two modules. The Reading Difficulty module was field tested at the University of Pittsburgh using eleven female full-time students in the master's program in reading. The field test results indicated that (1) students reacted favorably to the program, (2) students entered the module with a limited number of skills, (3) students progressed through the program at different rates, and (4) most of the competencies were attained by the students in the final weeks of the pilot study.
