Reading Instruction: Decision Making by the Teacher.
Decision-making in reading instruction can be made by the classroom teacher or through scripted materials, such as teacher manuals. Teachers have undergone schooling and certification, and thus are qualified to make decisions concerning objectives of the curriculum, learning opportunities for students, and assessment methods. Programmed reading materials can provide teachers with ideas for decision-making. Individualized instruction lacks a textbook, and thus library books make good reading materials for this instruction. Other unscripted means of teaching reading are the experience chart approach and enlarged books for shared reading. The discussion of teaching styles raises a number of other issues, such as state-mandated objectives and testing; outside school learning activities; learning styles theory; and philosophies of education.
