Principals Make a Difference: The Role They Play in Quality Reading Programs. OSSC Bulletin, Vol. 22, No. 10.
Practical ways principals can modify and monitor their school's reading programs are suggested in this report that also presents reading theory and research results. The bulk of the report focuses on the elementary school and is divided into a short section on theory and a longer section on practice. Suggestions are given about establishing reading as a priority, selecting and managing a program, placement and grouping, selecting a management system, and supervision and support of teachers. The portion of the report that focuses on middle, junior high, and secondary schools emphasizes remedial techniques for older students with reading problems. (Author/JM)
