Choosing a Text for the College Methods Course in Reading.
Blohm, Paul J.
Intended for teacher educators in reading, this paper provides criteria for evaluating texts for reading methods courses. The first part of the paper discusses some considerations in choosing a text, including course format, how frequently the text will be used, and whether the text will be a supplemental, companion, or principal resource. The remainder of the paper consists of a rating scale for reading methods texts that allows systematic evaluation of the book's content, readability, authorship, physical characteristics, organizational aids, reference aids, and instructor's manual.
