The Classroom Teacher and the Reading Consultant: Cooperation at the Junior High Level.
Henrichs, Margaret; Nelson, Carol
Guidelines for establishing content area reading programs at the junior high school level are presented in this paper. Following an overview of the development of a content area reading program in Columbia, Missouri, in which inservice teacher education was provided, 31 guidelines are presented to aid a content area reading resource specialist in such areas as developing effective qualities and attitudes and dealing successfully with faculty and administration. Twenty-seven organizational guidelines are then listed; these deal with such topics as establishing the need and purpose of a content area reading program, writing program objectives, developing materials, integrating the program into the school curriculum, and promoting communication among teachers. The following four areas of emphasis in inservice programs for content area teachers are then discussed: assessment of students and materials, vocabulary teaching and reinforcement, reading comprehension, and study skills. Finally, strengths of the Columbia program--related to such aspects as teacher participation and attitudes and student improvement--are described, and a few concerns are noted. A list of publications, cassette tapes, and films useful in developing a content area reading program is appended. (GW)
