The Reading Consultant as Change Agent.
Baker, Stanley E.
This paper discusses the ambiguity which characterizes the role of the reading consultant in the public school. Instead of assuming the quasi-administrative role which is traditional, the consultant should be made a special administrator with power equal to that of the building prinicpal; he or she should fully understand the forces operating within the school environment. A broad knowledge of both reading methodology and theories of administration is recommended. In addition, the consultant should assume a helpful stance, to facilitate the clients' progress toward mutually established goals. (Author/KS)
