Right to Read Teacher Preparation Project.
This paper is a summary description of the Peabody College Right to Read Teacher Preparation Project. The goals of the project are to plan, implement, and evaluate a replicable model for the improvement of the preservice reading program and to develop a program that prepares teachers for work in a wide variety of settings. Project objectives are to reduce illiteracy through improved preservice education and to offer a fully developed and validated model that might be adopted by other teacher training institutions. A three-state approach is being taken to attain the goals: an information base has been established to support the development of the model, the model is being applied to the present preservice program at Peabody College, and the potency of the model will be evaluated with respect to the costs incurred and the benefits obtained. Specific goals for the first and second year of the program are also listed. (TS)
