An Investigation of Elementary Preservice Teachers' Reading Instructional Beliefs
Barnyak, Natalie Conrad; Paquette, Kelli R.
Reading Improvement, v47 n1 p7-17 Spr 2010
In today's diverse elementary classrooms, teacher educators must model for preservice teachers how to implement exemplary literacy practices. It is sometimes necessary to dispel misconceptions regarding these instructional practices. Often, instructional strategies learned in the undergraduate classroom are disregarded by preservice teachers because these techniques were not used during their own elementary school experiences. This quantitative research study investigated elementary education preservice teachers' attitudes and beliefs about reading instruction and whether or not their literacy coursework had an impact on them.
