Library of Congress Subject Heading

Reading teachers--In-service training; Reading (Elementary)


The purpose of this investigation was to familiarize the writer with concise information and then necessary background to initiate an in-service reading program in the diocese of St. Louis. Last year the diocese adopted two revised basal series. In order for the teachers to utilize the material and learn various techniques for more effective teaching, this study was undertaken. The importance of providing good reading instruction in our schools is undisputed. Therefore, using in-service programs for teacher preparation and efficiency may not only enrich the teacher but may be a challenge to meet the abilities and potentialities of today's children.
