An Overview of an Inservice Content Area Reading Program.
As part of the work from the Content Area Reading Project (CARP), which focuses on inservice teacher education in content area reading, this paper provides an overview of inservice content area reading within the CARP model. The first section of the paper reviews the literature on inservice education and indicates the serious problems with traditional approaches to inservice education, particularly when it focuses on content area reading. The second section of the paper presents information on an inservice content area reading program, one providing a series of monthly inservice sessions that coordinate discussions of theory with followup activities in the classrooms. This section also presents information on the planning stages, assumptions, goals, and organization of the three-year CARP model for implementing an inservice content area reading program. (RL)
