The Principle's Role in the Reading Program.
Fech, E. B.; Micetich, B. J.
The principal's role in the reading program is examined in this paper, and a reading inservice program for principals is described. The first section shows how a school superintendent became aware of the need for principals to take an active role in their schools' reading programs, cites literature that notes the importance of the principal's role, and discusses the kinds of knowledge about reading instruction that principals need. The second section discusses the development of the inservice program and describes the following steps of the program: administration of a survey of principals' attitudes about their role in the reading program; presentation of a speech on the topic of principals and reading; development of individual reading philosophies by principals and their staffs; presentation of inservice programs by publishing company consultants; presentation of a final inservice workshop; and evaluation of the program by principals. An appendix includes copies of the survey and evaluation forms given to principals, letters sent to principals and to publishing company consultants, and a copy of the program for the final inservice workshop.
