The What's, Why's and How's of Inservice Education in Reading in the Content Areas.
Deffenbaugh, Sue A.
This resource guide, based on ideas drawn from Teachers Corps projects, contains suggestions for organizing and conducting inservice programs on reading in the content areas. The first section of the guide provides guidance from the literature concerning decisions to be made in establishing an inservice program, including suggestions from experienced inservice leaders and descriptions of models of workable programs. The second section discusses inservice activities, such as ways of creating awareness and examining beliefs, exploring the demands of the reading assignments, investigating skills in content area reading, developing vocabulary instructional techniques, and developing instructional techniques in comprehension. Resources for the inservice leader are provided in the third section, specifically resources for structuring and conducting inservice sessions, for information about reading and teaching strategies in the content areas, and for information about learning-to-learn skills. The final section outlines issues and perspectives, including discussions of teaching reading in the content areas, other considerations for classroom instruction, and inservice planning. A selected bibliography is included. (FL)
