A Minimal Professional Library in Elementary Reading Instruction: A Survey.
Koenke, Karl
This document presents a book list that results from a national survey of reading program directors and was designed to serve as a guide for starting a personal professional library in reading. Over one-third of the directors identified in the International Reading Association's catalog of graduate reading programs were asked which books they would recommend to a first-year elementary school teacher who wished to establish such a library. The 73 directors or their designates (out of 89 asked) cited 118 titles and made general recommendations such as, "get a good general reference text," or "get an activities book." The suggestion is to use the list of the twenty most frequently cited titles, but to remember that it is based on the responses of a group of experts who probably should be noted for the diversity rather than the unanimity of their opinion.
