Inservice Education to Improve Reading Instruction. Reading Aids Series.
Otto, Wayne; Erickson, Lawrence
This monograph reflects some of the current thinking about inservice teacher education, with a particular focus on the role of inservice education in improving reading instruction. Chapter one, an introduction to inservice education, attempts to deal with the problems involved in implementing inservice programs as well as to establish the need for them. Chapter two discusses the process of inservice planning and implementation. The topics covered range from the identification of legitimate needs for inservice education, through the steps of implementation, to the evaluation of the efforts expended. Staff roles and responsibilities are dealt with in chapter three. Formats for inservice sessions (e.g., lecture, demonstration, observation, interviewing, brainstorming, role playing, and buzz sessions) are presented in chapter four, and strengthsand limitations of each are considered. Some descriptions of inservice programs that have already been implemented are given in chapter five. (WR)
