The Teacher of Reading.
Harste, Jerome C.; And Others
A perspective for analyzing and interpreting data collected on reading teachers by the Educational Testing Service at the request of the Data Analysis Committee of the International Reading Association is presented in this manuscript. Increasingly, the teacher variable in reading instruction has become a topic of investigation. The author suggests a model of teacher as decisionmaker and attempts to relate dominant teacher beliefs and characteristics with their theoretical orientation toward reading instruction. An overview of variables such as race, sex, teaching experience, and training of reading teachers is provided. Trends in perception of decisionmaking involvement, beliefs, goals selected for the classroom reading program, and the relationship of goal selection to other teacher variables is discussed. Implications and directions for classroom teachers, administrators, teacher trainers, researchers, publishers, and state and federal agency personnel are outlined. (KS)
