Spreading the Good News.
Clary, Linda Mixon
Reading teachers and the field of reading have received much criticism because the public believes that children are not being taught to read. Some suggestions for letting the public know what children are learning include: using word of mouth; having frequent school visitations; using PTA meetings to advantage; seeking volunteers; inviting press coverage of reading projects; making public exhibits; establishing a speaker's bureau; making a presentation for a broadcast talk show, getting parents turned on to reading; working with public libraries; inviting critics to a meal and showing them what is happening; developing a brief, positive slogan for radio spots; finding sponsors in the community to donate their products; devising contests; publishing a newsletter; sending notes home; organizing a teacher buddy system to give relief to teachers and to help with simple jobs; arranging seminars for parents and community members; organizing a telephone campaign to publicize a few major good characteristics of the reading program; and having tee shirts made with reading slogans.
