An Undergraduate Teacher Preparation Program in Reading.
University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls. Dept. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This program, leading to specialization in reading on the undergraduate level, has been developed by the Division of Reading in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Northern Iowa. The B.A. program in Elementary Education: Remedial Reading is characterized by early and continuous involvement with children in classrooms and clinical settings, an emphasis on the development of total language competency in the child, close supervision of students' work with children, and attention to the progress of individual students in relation to program objectives. The course work in this program is planned so that the student moves from a knowledge of the reading process and school reading programs to management and decision-making skills, first on a one-to-one basis, then in a small group, and finally in the classroom setting. The Reading Division includes five full-time faculty members representing expertise, publication, and service in the field of reading. In addition, two professional reading clinicians and graduate assistants serve in the Reading Center. (Author/BD)
