As deplorable as it seems the writer has observed that so many teachers of the elementary grades are not taking advantage of the invaluable aid, choral reading. Since one of the major objectives of education and mental hygiene is the development of well rounded individuals, capable of living fully and richly in their culture, it is very necessary that choral reading be included in the teaching routine of all elementary grades.

If choral reading is conducted properly it is very valuable. The developments are great from the social and speech standpoint.

The purpose of this evaluation is to find all high and low points in the teaching of choral reading in the elementary grades and compare same to see if the evils out weighed the values. At one time choral reading seemed to have lost its value but it is slowly coming back into the class room. The writer thinks it is an invaluable aid to elementary children especially the timid and malajusted child, and is desirous to advocate its values to all people that are interested in the development of the whole child.

This evaluation covers the elementary grades.
