A Study of Needs for Possible Inservice Education Programs as Expressed by Secondary English Teachers and as Perceived by Their Administrators.
Verner, Zenobia Brown; Bauer, Mary Beth
A statewide survey of Texas secondary school English teachers and their administrators was conducted to identify in-service needs expressed by teachers and perceived by administrators. Questionnaires were mailed to randomly selected teachers, principals, and central-office administrative personnel. An analysis of the responses indicated that the five items ranked as greatest in-service needs were the following: (1) providing for the disabled reader in the classroom; (2) individualizing instruction; (3) providing enrichment activities for the superior student; (4) providing a fused program which incorporates oral language, literature, composition, listening, and reading skills; and (5) providing instruction which would help students to develop better oral and written communication skills. Other items for which respondents indicated a positive need, although they were not ranked in the first five items by the majority of respondents, included diagnosing student needs and developing student creativity.
