Reading Instruction: A Performance-Based Teacher Education Program for Reading Specialists.
Hillerich, Robert L.
Based on recommendations of the International Reading Association, this outline of a performance based program for training reading specialists consists of twelve semester hours of graduate work. The courses include basic decoding skills, comprehension/study skills, diagnostic techniques, corrective treatment, and a practicum. The four elements of this program are identified as competencies or specific objectives stated in measurable or behavioral terms, criteria for assessing the accomplishment of the objectives, instruction relating to the criteria with provision for individualization, and objective assessment in terms of the criteria. An underlying philosophy for the program content--including assumptions about teacher attitudes, understanding, knowledges, and skills--is provided. The sources of the reading skills identified in this program are also given. The remainder of the outline presents the competencies, experiences, and criterion assessment for each skill listed in the five topic areas. A list of references concludes each section. (TO)
