The problem of the slow learner is receiving constantly greater attention. Educators are beginning to discover that the learning ability of this group of pupils is much greater than was originally believed. We have been freed from the notion that human nature is a fixed entity--that large masses of human beings are committed inevitably to a particular role in society, or to a world of poverty, war, crime, or economic or social stratification. We believe that the lot of the individual and of mankind is definitely improvable through the application to human living. The writer, too, is of the opinion that improved teaching techniques and greater understanding of child psychology can do much to help this group of children who may be classified as slow learners. With the above opinion in mind and charged with the responsibility of teaching a section of the second grade of Carver Elementary School, Bryan, Texas, the writer decided to do further study in order that she might improve her efficiency in handling and teaching this group.
