Dissemination of Reading Research to Secondary School Teachers and Administrators.
Berger, Allen; Andolina, Charlene
Research trends in secondary reading led the authors to investigate the process of dissemination of reading research to secondary school teachers and administrators. In considering ways of disseminating research, the concept of a continuum is introduced. At one extreme are the schools that take the responsibility for conducting their own research. In the middle are schools whose supervisory staff share research findings which have been published. Toward the end are the schools that bring in experts to talk to the teachers and administrators. At any point along this continuum, a breakdown can occur which interferes with the dissemination process. The person directing the research may leave the school, the manner and form in which research is shared may not be conducive to implementation, or an administrator may invite an expert who does not do a good job of bridging the gap between research and practice. The authors suggest alternative approaches to enhance the process of disseminating reading research throughout secondary schools in the United States. (Author)
