The Challenge of Continued Learning.
Network News, p1-4 Spr 1996
One of the greatest challenges for teacher leaders can be working with Reading Recovery teachers in continuing contact in ways that build upon and extend their understandings. Continuing contact sessions for experienced Reading Recovery teachers differ from the initial training experience, and activities in these sessions should foster teacher thinking. Points to be considered in continued learning situations are: (1) teacher contact sessions should be particularly challenging and productive; (2) the social context of continued contact is the originator of higher learning and should provide a supportive learning environment; (3) teachers' roles in their working environments may affect their levels of participation in continued learning; (4) conversations are valuable for exchange of information and should include review and evaluation of teaching procedures, and (5) creative preparation and flexible presentation are important for the effectiveness of the session.
