Secondary Content Area Reading: Challenging Sell for Professors in Teacher Education Programs
Almerico, Gina M.
Research in Higher Education Journal, v14 Dec 2011
Candidates in teacher education programs who are training to become secondary education content area teachers are required in most programs to enroll in a class dealing with teaching reading in the content areas. A number of these candidates reluctantly attend these courses and question the appropriateness of the content they are required to endure. This paper addresses the resistance professors who teach these courses experience and the strategies which, when implemented can turn these reluctant learners into true believers of the value of teaching reading strategies in their content area classes.
