Theoretical Orientation toward Reading among Preservice Teachers: A Preliminary Study.
Stansell, John C.; Hubert, Pat S.
A study among 207 preservice teachers was conducted to discover their patterns of theoretical orientation toward reading and whether such patterns differed between students seeking elementary certification and those seeking secondary certification. The students responded in writing to an interview about reading, presented in the form of a questionnaire. The answers were analyzed as representing decoding, skills, or whole language orientation. It was discovered that there was a significant tendency to prefer a skills orientation in each subgroup and in the entire sample. No significant differences appeared between the subgroups. (TJ)
