Degree Discipline



The reading material in the primary section must by well taught in order that when a child leaves this section, he will have a broader and wider comprehension of the subjects to be learned in the intermediate and upper elementary grades.

We know that in teaching any subject the primary object in view is to select material according to the child's ability, and interest; and the outcome expected from what is to be learned. The writer shall attempt to show that reading well presented in the primary section aids in developing the child.for social and civic responsibilities which are the most important aims in the educational program.

The major purpose of reading should be for enjoyment. The amount of reading done in school, the selections that are chosen, and the methods used in teaching, are important factors which may influence the child's reading habits for life.
