The Building Administrator and the Reading Program.
Howell, James G.
The importance of the building administrator's leadership role in improving a reading program is stressed in this paper. Five major areas of responsibility for the building administrator in developing a successful reading program are delineated. The first area of responsibility is working with teachers and includes supervision of instruction, inservice activities, and tapping individual teaching strengths within the building. Working with pupils is the second major area of responsibility, part of which is knowing the school community. Creating a building atmosphere which reflects the importance of reading is the third area of responsibility. The fourth area of responsibility is to provide leadership in establishing building policies which will provide directions and influence reading instruction. The final area of responsibility is public relations, the involvement of parents and the community in the educational process. (TO)
