The Effects of a Reading Specialist in a K-4 School.
Bonk, Rita M.
This study examined the role of a reading specialist, hypothesizing that teachers of grades K-4 in an urban school district do not know nor understand the role of the reading specialist and would not take advantage of suggestions and strategies given them by the specialist. A survey was given to the teachers to see if they understood the reading specialist's role; reading specialists in the district also were surveyed to see if they themselves knew their role. Results indicated that the teachers and the reading specialists differed as to the most important responsibilities of the reading specialist. Findings suggest that this was the biggest area of disagreement between the teachers and the reading specialists. Findings further suggest that the teachers do know the role of the reading specialist and do use the suggestions and strategies recommended to them thereby, refuting the hypothesis. (Contains three tables of data and 19 references; 21 completed surveys are appended.) (CR)
