Library of Congress Subject Heading

Reading (Middle school); Reading teachers; Teacher effectiveness


This study was undertaken in order to ascertain the reading study skills that seventh and eighth grade teachers stress in teaching the content area subjects. It was hoped that an evaluation would determine the strengths and weaknesses of teaching procedures in this area. It is hoped that this survey will indicate the training needs of seventh and eighth grade teachers since efficiency in supplying pupil needs must begin with supplying teacher needs. If teachers are aware of the vital needs of their pupils in this area and if they are aware of their responsibilities in providing for these needs, then notable progress will be made in the efficient mastery of subject matter. It is hoped that in answering the questionnaire the respondents have gained some insights related to the reading study skills pertinent to their particular area of content. The content subjects under consideration were religion, science, and social studies.
