Raising Standards Through Competency-Based Inservice Education.
Horodezky, Betty
In light of demands from our rapidly changing society, the need to revitalize and renovate teacher education through competency-based programs is long overdue. We cannot hope to attain the high level of competency needed in our professional reading programs if we are to continue in our traditional demands for cognitive skills without application to children in our instructional processes. Inservice teacher education programs also have a growing responsibility for providing reading teachers with more than the conventional facts and theories of reading that they may or may not have received in their earlier training. Perhaps one of the most vigorous and far reaching efforts in the 1970's to raise the current standards of inservice and continuing education for those who teach reading is found in the International Reading Association's Competency-Based Teacher Education Model. The 17 components listed are referred to as resource modules and can be divided into instructional modules for use in inservice, graduate, or undergraduate programs. Educational institutions must be ready to reach beyond traditional programs of inservice and preservice instruction if we are to succeed in our thrust toward excellence in educational programs for teachers of reading.
