The Substitute Teacher in Reading Instruction.
Ediger, Marlow
Since regular teachers miss on average 8 days of work each year due to illness, there is a need to have well trained substitute teachers for the public schools. The substitute teacher needs inservice education programs which prepare him/her to do a quality job of teaching students. The following are essential reading skills to develop within certified substitute teachers: word recognition skills; structural analysis skills; syntactical analysis skills; and higher levels of cognition in questioning. This paper also considers some other goals which a substitute teacher should aim for, such as helping develop a love for reading in students; having structural ideas in mind as to what needs to be emphasized in reading instruction; possessing a repertoire of skills for students to use in increasing comprehension abilities; being well versed in management strategies when teaching students; having a repertoire of planned activities to assist students to indicate what has been learned within diverse culminating activities; and having knowledge of and implementing evaluation techniques which are valid and reliable for assessing reading achievement.
