Summary

A survey of 767 teachers from five major regions of the country solicited teachers' views and perceptions concerning the roles and responsibilities of reading consultants. It was found that 85% or more of the respondents thought that the prime functions of reading consultants are to diagnose students' reading problems, interpret test results, provide for poor readers, be available to teachers for conferences and direct assistance, assist in making provision for advanced readers, make suggestions for improvement of teachers' procedures, and assist teachers in individualizing instruction. Other important functions as agreed to by 50% or more of the respondents were assisting teachers with testing, helping pupils develop favorable attitudes toward reading, making demonstration lessons, providing on the job help with teaching reading skills, assisting in developing reading centers, and being available to teachers for parent conferences. Other responses receiving 50% or more agreement related to inservice training and facilitative assistance provided by the consultant to the classroom teacher. (TJ)
