Abstract/Description: In our culture the ability to read holds an eminent position. Many of the ordinary practices of daily living are associated with reading. Comprehending labels, bank statements, signs, bill boards, newspapers, books, and letters are but a few of the items encountered by individuals daily. For successful: existence in society, each individual must be able to read with sufficient comprehension to enable him to carry on the normal procedures of life. The reading program of the schools has been a topic of extensive investigation in recent years. Educators, lay people, parents and students have discussed the methods and procedures employed in the present reading programs. Much emphasis in the discussions has been placed upon the youngsters in school who are not progressing at a rate associated with a particular grade level.
