Improving Instructional Effectiveness through Content Area Reading Inservice Based on Needs of a High School Staff.
Chandler, Evelyn Finnell
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of inservice training of high school staff members on their ability to apply content area reading instructional skills selected by them as areas in which they need and want to improve. The hypothesis for the study was that there is a significant difference in the ability to apply instructional skills between those who have had the inservice training and those who have not, when the two groups are not significantly different in experience, recency of credit, and degrees held. The assumption was made that the ability to apply instructional skills improves student achievement. After testing the experimental and control groups, it was concluded that basing inservice training on staff needs is an important consideration. Those staff members in the experimental group who scored higher on the test were less experienced than others in the group. This would indicate that the training heightened their ability to apply skills necessary to improve their instruction and improve student achievement, if the assumption is correct. (Author/TS)
