Professional Reading of Teachers Questionnaire.
Hipple, Theodore W.; Giblin, Thomas R.
Designed to determine the professional reading backgrounds, habits, and interests of secondary English teachers, this study surveyed the amount of reading done in three areas: professional journals, books about the teaching of English, and books on general education. Titles of selected books (with authors) and journals are presented, along with fictitious titles, and the respondent is asked to mark a seven-point scale after each title, indicating his degree of familiarity with each item, from never having heard of it to intimate knowledge of the contents. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the documents lists its category (Teacher Competency), title, authors, and date, and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
