Reading Recovery Teacher Training: Communities of Learners Engaged in Inquiry.
Network News, p1-5 Spr 1998
This paper examines the original design of the Reading Recovery teacher training program as it relates to sociocultural theory. It also discusses how two constructs implicit in the sociocultural theory (community of learners and the role of inquiry) relate to Reading Recovery training. The paper notes that sociocultural theory predicts that human knowledge is socially constructed through shared activities and communication, and that Reading Recovery teacher training is organized to provide both shared activities (teaching demonstrations) and opportunity for communication (discussions). It concludes that although the constructs of community-of-learners and inquiry are current North American frames for understanding teaching and learning, they were inherent in the original design of the Reading Recovery teacher training program.
