Toward Better Preparation of Language Arts and Reading Teachers.
Page, William D.
Combing experienced teachers (i.e., teachers in graduate programs in reading or language arts) and preservice reading students in methods courses is not a new idea, but the practice is not prevalent. Most teacher preparation institutions still run the initial language arts and reading courses before student teaching and independent or input other than the instructor and the library. Largely the problem of combined programs lies in scheduling: evening sessions must be scheduled in order that the graduate students may attend. Preservice students, however, could begin classes in midafternoon; then the graduate students and teachers enrolled in reading programs could join together for a combined session. Afterwards, the experienced group could finish their evening course separately. The benefit of this combined session is a synthesis of practical realities and youthful expectations of what should be.
