Practicum Training for Teachers of Struggling Readers
Morris, Darrell
Phi Delta Kappan, v92 n8 p54-57 May 2011
Teachers who work with struggling beginning readers need a supervised training experience that leads them to understand both how reading ability develops and how to adapt instruction to meet the needs of individual children. The practicum, in which a teacher works with one struggling reader under the supervision of an experienced and expert practitioner, gives teachers knowledge about reading materials, teaching techniques, and instructional pacing. The knowledge the teacher gains can be spread through the school.
