Over a period of years, very close observation has been made and with keen interest of the varying degrees of development of students, in the activities, in which reading is required. Both strength and weaknesses were included. It was found that some pupils had failed to comprehend and were therefore handicapped in obtaining the desired results in the reading activities.
Knowing how vital it is for a child to become a comprehensive reader in America's cultural growth and the responsibility of the teacher in aiding pupils in their growth, a Study of the Reading Needs of Kate Long Elementary School, Grades four, five, and six was chosen.
The purpose of this study is to study the reading needs of Kate Long Elementary School pupils and to offer some possible solutions, thereby, developing more effective readers of Kate Long Elementary School, Grades four, five and six, including a limited number of possible attacks to the problem.
As has been stated earlier in this chapter, poor reading in America's schools, is one of the most acute problems facing teachers today. Kate Long Elementary School is of no acception. However, because of the depth of the problem and the wide range of its interest and research, this study is limited to reading needs of grades four, five, and six of Kate Long Elementary School.
