Evaluations of Instructional Experiences for Pre-Service Teachers of Reading.
Gee, Thomas C.
The purposes of this study were to determine (1) if the majority of Texas professors of reading agree on the value of 15 instructional experiences for preservice teachers of reading, (2) to what extent the 15 selected instructional activities are already required for prospective reading teachers, and (3) some of the basic competencies that college reading professors expect of beginning reading teachers. A questionnaire asked professors at colleges and universities to evaluate a variety of preservice learning activities by judging them according to their appropriateness and desirability. Data indicated which activities were considered most valuable and which were being implemented as requirements in preservice reading courses. By examining these preservice activities, the following list of eight competencies was compiled: (1) demonstrate knowledge of the basic skills of reading; (2) demonstrate evaluative skill in selecting instructional materials for the classroom; (3) demonstrate knowledge of a variety of instructional approaches; (4) be able to critically analyze microteaching sessions; (5) demonstrate skill in interviewing students regarding their achievement and interests; (6) demonstrate skill in administering and evaluating selected diagnostic reading tools; (7) demonstrate skill in conducting reading lessons with individuals, small groups, and large groups; and (8) demonstrate skill in using instructional and screening machines.
