A Forward Looking Reading Program.
Teachers, supervisors, and administrators need to have perspectives pertaining to the future in a quality reading program. A forward looking reading program emphasizes the following aspects: (1) starting instruction where each student presently is in achievement; (2) teaching diverse word recognition techniques; (3) increasing the purpose for learning in acquiring content; (4) improving the quality of basal textbooks as well as trade books; (5) providing more meaningful content; and (6) developing a better sequence of reading material content. Inservice education is needed to upgrade the teaching of reading as well as to develop a forward looking reading program. These inservice education approaches include: doing research to solve problems in reading; organizing faculty meetings to discuss specific problems in reading instruction; and attending professional meetings devoted to reading instruction.
